How can we improve Azure Virtual Machines?

Mounting BLOB storage in file system like NFS

I just would like to mount a BLOB storage directory in a Linux file system like it was an NFS drive. Thanks to FUSE, a userlevel driver can be made to share files across machines.

Currently, if you need to share files between VMs you have to set up SAMBA or NFS having a "master" node that holds the main copy of the files, and other VMs mount these shares in their file systems.

Proposal: "see" a BLOB storage directory like a directory in the main file system. This idea can be extended to Windows VMs using shared folders
