On Internet.com today there's a new video tutorial about using the Zend_Service_WindowsAzure component of the Zend Framework to connect to and store blob information on the Windows Azure service.

One increasingly common use of the cloud is storage for BLOBs (binary large objects) such as videos, applications, and even website images. Businesses use cloud storage to streamline operations. In his five-minute Internet.com video, Jason Gilmore uses the Zend Framework's Zend_Service_WindowsAzure component to demonstrate the fundamental concepts behind storing BLOBs within the Windows Azure cloud.

They'll show you how to create a blob storage containers, upload some data into it and pull the data back out. They also touch on working with the permissions on Azure so your script can access it correctly.
