There is Azure Blob and Azure Files

There is no official way to map azure blob storage as network drive. But you can use some third-party tool like CloudBerry Drive for Microsoft Azure (it needs a license, but you can use the free trial version). Here is a doc on how to configure it, I tried and it works well for mapping azure blob storage as network drive.

Do you mean mapping Azure file storage? You can't map blob storage as a network drive (unless you're using a third party program)
