Subject [1/2] libcloud git commit: Update Azure Blobs Storage driver documentation
Date Mon, 11 Jun 2018 19:45:57 GMT
Repository: libcloud

Update Azure Blobs Storage driver documentation

The current screenshots in the Azure Blobs Storage driver documentation
show an old version of the Azure portal. Some of the terminology and
where to find access keys has changed, so this commit updates the
screenshots and the wording in the documentation.

Additionally, Azure now also offers a new type of storage account called
"Blob storage" which is not supported by the current libcloud driver
implementation. This change therefore adds wording to avoid user
confusion when creating a storage account for use with libcloud.
