During this course, we'll take a look at the Microsoft Azure Storage service's Blob feature! In essence, this service is similar to Amazon Web Services (AWS) Simple Storage Service (S3). While Amazon S3 has "buckets" and "objects," Azure Blob Storage has "containers" and "blobs." Microsoft Azure Storage is geo-distributed, redundant, highly available, and resilient. You can leverage this service for your applications with confidence, knowing that your data will always be a simple API call away.
