Whether it uses FILESTREAM or not, Azure SQL and Managed SQL should handle large amounts of blob data effortlessly. Maintaining references to externally stored blobs is a natural way to do this, whether stored in Azure Blob Store or some other external file repository. But until SQL exhibits competency in storing blobs in its database file, it should have some method to store references to them but store the blob data using a fast external method.
