AzureCopy Go now with added CopyBlob flag

Azurecopy (Go version) 0.2.2 has now been released. Major benefit is now that when copying to Azure we can use the absolutely AWESOME CopyBlob functionality Azure provides. This allows blobs to be copied from S3 (for example) to Azure without having to go via the machine executing the instructions (and use my bandwidth!)

An example of copying from S3 to Azure is as simple as:

azurecopycommand_windows_amd64.exe  -S3DefaultAccessID=”S3 Access ID” -S3DefaultAccessSecret=”S3 Access Secret” -S3DefaultRegion=”us-west-2″ -dest=”” -AzureDefaultAccountName=”myaccount” -AzureDefaultAccountKey=”Azure key” -source= –copyblob

The key thing is the –copyblob flag. This tells AzureCopy to do it’s magic!

By default AzureCopy-Go will copy 5 blobs concurrently, this is to not overload your own bandwidth, but with Azure CopyBlob feature feel free to crank that setting up using the –cc flag (eg add -cc=20) Smile

  1. Hello, thank you for providing this tool.

      • Hi

        Just a couple of things, are you 100% certain that your AccessID and AccessSecret are correct?
        Also, I notice that the double quotes around the example string you’ve pasted don’t quite look correct. They appear to be the character ” instead of ” . Can you retry your command with definitely using regular double quotes?
