We want to copy all our contents to azure.
Reading contents one by one on the main storage will take a long time. We need to investigate the best way of doing a bulk copy to azure.
To be able to mount a full partition on azure, we need to create a virtual machine with enough data disks (11 1023GB data disks), then make a RAID0 over the data disks to create a 10+TB block device.
We then need to transfer the data, for instance using dd.
