IoT Hub is a managed service, hosted in the cloud, that acts as a central message hub for bi-directional communication between your IoT application and the devices it manages. You can use Azure IoT Hub to build IoT solutions with reliable and secure communications between millions of IoT devices and a cloud-hosted solution backend. You can connect virtually any device to IoT Hub.

Azure Storage containers is the new custom endpoint type available with IoT Hub. Azure Storage containers joins Service Bus queues, topics, and Event Hubs as supported custom endpoint types for IoT Hub message routing. Storage was the most requested endpoint type for message routing because it makes it super simple to build a cold-path analytics pipeline. The best part, it’s available everywhere.
