Course Description

This course teaches you how to work with Azure Storage and its associated services.

Course Objectives

By the end of this course, you'll have gained a firm understanding of the key components that comprise the Azure Storage platform. Ideally, you will achieve the following learning objectives:

  • How to comprehend the various components of Azure storage services.
  • How to implement and configure Azure storage services. 
  • How to manage access and monitor your implementation. 

Intended Audience

This course is intended for individuals who wish to pursue the Azure 70-532 certification.


You should have work experience with Azure and general cloud computing knowledge.

This Course Includes

  • 1 hour and 17 minutes of high-definition video.
  • Expert-led instruction and exploration of important concepts surrounding Azure storage services.

What You Will Learn

  • An introduction to Azure storage services.
  • How to implement Azure storage blobs and Azure files.
  • How to implement storage tables.
  • How to implement storage queues.
  • How to manage access and monitor storage.
  • How to implement SQL databases.  

Hello and welcome to the design and implement a storage strategy course, part of the Azure 70-532 exam prep by CloudAcademy. In this lecture, we'll briefly introduce you to all the topics that we'll delve into during this course.

This course will prepare for the different types of storage services covered within the exam. We'll be covering two storage systems, Azure Storage and SQL Database.

We'll start by discussing storage. A single storage account offers the following types of features. Blobs, which act as a kind of distributed file system in the cloud. Files, which allow SMB compatible access to file shares. Tables, which is a cheap and simple to use key value store. And queues, which is reliable, simple and cheap messaging service. We'll cover each of these in more detail later.

We'll then highlight the elements of the course that relate to security and how you can control access to the data held in Azure before we finally introduce the concept of monitoring within the storage using metrics and logs, all within Azure.

We'll then move on to cover SQL Database, which provides classic, relational database capabilities as a managed service in the cloud. We'll highlight why you might want to use a service and introduce options on performance levels, capacity and facilities provided to support scaling as required.

Stay tuned for the next section and we'll go over the concepts of what blobs are.
