The backend for serving files from the Azure blob storage service.

To enable, add azurefs to the fileserver_backend option in the Master config file.

  - azurefs

Each environment is configured as a storage container. The name of the container must match the name of the environment. The storage_account is the name of the storage account inside Azure where the container lives, and the storage_key is the access key used for that storage account:

    storage_account: my_storage
    storage_key: frehgfw34fWGegG07fwsfw343tGFDSDGDFGD==

With this configuration, multiple storage accounts can be used with a single salt instrastructure.
