It would be nice to have a remote provider for Microsoft Azure, since it is a big player in the storage space. There is an existing Python sdk for it: https://github.com/Azure/azure-storage-python

    Hey there! It does not look like as if this has been ever picked up by anyone.

    I have taken a shot at implementing an snakemake.remote.AzureStorage module. My preliminary tests look promising, but I could use some suggestions how to test all contingencies. The tests for the other remote providers are very limited, and a simple "copy from remote" is definitely working.

    I will open a pull request in reference to this issue and see what kind of feedback people give.
