Hey everyone,

 

we were wondering how clientside deduplication and compression is working on Azures “Storage Accounts”. It doesn’t seem like it’s using our Mediaagent but which resource is it using then? Is there somehow of an “invisible” virtual maschine which runs a “Storage Account” in Azure and does the deduplication etc.?

 

Best regards

This is executed on the designated access node who pulls the data from the storage account.
