Azure Storage + Ghost

How to use Ghost and Azure Storage together

Integrate secure image storage and management into Ghost using Microsoft Azure Storage - deployed using a custom storage adapter

Azure Storage is a Microsoft service for scalable cloud storage, which can be connected to a Ghost publication using a custom storage adapter. This is an ideal solution for developers managing sites with a high volume of images, or those that require a media library management interface to maintain images in Ghost.

Full Azure Storage adapter

By default, Ghost stores any images uploaded to Ghost Admin locally to its filesystem, delivers them via the same Ghost front-end service which delivers Ghost themes. It’s possible to replace this layer entirely using a custom storage adapter.

👉 Ghost-azure-storage is a widely tested, open source storage adapter with a comprehensive setup guide.

A custom storage adapter allows Ghost to upload and serve images directly to/from external services like Microsoft’s Azure. When using a storage adapter in Ghost, your images are uploaded directly to Azure Storage and integrated into its media library, allowing you to use their service directly to manage your assets.
