A few of my favorite… Windows Azure Storage Explorers… (doesn’t quite roll off the tongue, but you get the idea)

Windows Azure Storage Team Blog - Windows Azure Storage Explorers

“We get a few queries every now and then on the availability of utilities for Windows Azure Storage and decided to put together a list of the storage explorers we know of. The tools are all Windows Azure Storage explorers that can be used to enumerate and/or transfer data to and from blobs, tables or queues. Many of these are free and some come with evaluation periods.

In the below table, we list each Windows Azure Storage explorer, and then put an “X” in each block if it provides the ability to either enumerate and/or access the data abstraction. The last column indicates if the explorer is free or not.



Wow, who knew there were so many utilities of this kind (well obviously I didn’t ;). It’s cool to see how many are free… :)
