Can I FTP to my Azure account?

Azure Storage easily gives you 10TB of storage.

So a common question, is how can you upload information to your Storage Account.
FTP is a standard way of uploading files but is usually not available in Azure.
However is it possible to implement something that mimics an FTP but allows you to save data to the
FTP server?

Well I thought on trying on implementing something like that but luckily several guys have already
done that.

Richard Parker has a post on his blog and has also posted the source code in
codeplex FTP2Azure. This implementation works with clients like FileZile. It only does
Active connections.


 Maarten Balliauw also did some similar work. He did not provided the source code but
he does active and passive connections so a mix with Richard’s post can be interesting.
