Abstract: as the world of knowledge based systems and digital knowledge sharing grows, business models involving document management and storage of large blocks of files is becoming the need of the hour. It is very essential to select the correct and efficient file system to store the files in order to ease the retrieving and addition of files. Alhough using cloud technologies to save such data offers flexibility, the biggest challenge is to select whether to opt for a distributed file system mounted over cloud virtual machines or use Paas based file storages available as platforms. Here, we compare the performance of two environments both deployed on a same storage account on Azure cloud. One is GlusterFS file system mounted on a virtual machine on Azure and the other is Paas based Azure blob storage using a website for encryption hosted on Azure.
