As you know, it relies on the naming convention provided in Ola Hallengren’s Maintenance Solution and comes in two parts: the AzureBlobStorageSync command-line application, and the AzureBlobStorageRestore command-line application.

Using Azure blob storage (or S3 if you go the Amazon way) as a long-term storage mechanism for database backups is a pretty smart idea.
