Mounting the uploads folder to an Azure Storage Container

I was reading this article to directly get uploaded media to an Azure Storage container.

But my sys-admin says he can get this solved in an easier way - he’ll mount the /uploads folder of the Django app to a Azure Storage Container directly - this will cause uploaded files directly uploaded to Azure Storage.

How does mount work ?

It assigns that external resource to a “mount point” within your system. In Windows, this would be a drive letter, in Linux it’s a directory.

It seems we can’t mount to a Azure blob like we can do for S3.
