When I deploy Oracle Database on Amazon EC2, I can backup to Object Store with RMAN, using "Oracle Secure Backup Cloud Module for Amazon S3".

This is great.

When I deploy Oracle Database on Azure, I would like to use Azure Blob Storage with RMAN. Is there a similar or recommended solution to have RMAN sending backup pieces to Azure Blob Storage?

In this case, I deploy Oracle Database myself on a virtual machine created in Azure. I do not use managed services.

Thank you

Currently we do not have a dedicated module for it.

However, (I think) on Azure you can expose their object/blob storage as a filesystem. In that instance, you could use RMAN to backup to that.

Similarly, you could back up to an NFS share.
