Use custom access/secret keys

If you do not want to share the credentials of the Azure blob storage with your users/applications, you can set the original credentials in the shell environment using AZURE_STORAGE_ACCOUNT and AZURE_STORAGE_KEY variables and assign different access/secret keys to MINIO_ROOT_USER and MINIO_ROOT_PASSWORD.
