Description

The Azure Storage suite of services form the core foundation of much of the rest of the Azure services ecosystem. Blobs are low-level data primitives that can store any data type and size. Tables provide inexpensive, scalable NoSQL storage of key/value data pairs. Azure queues provide a messaging substrate to asynchronously and reliably connect distinct elements of a distributed system. Azure files provide an SMB-compatible file system for enabling lift-and-shift scenarios of legacy applications that use file shares. Azure disks provide consistent, high-performance storage for virtual machines running in the cloud.

In this Introduction to Azure Storage course you'll learn about the features of these core services, and see demonstrations of their use. Specifically, you will:

  • Define the major components of Azure Storage
  • Understand the different types of blobs and their intended use
  • Learn basic programming APIs for table storage
  • Discover how queues are used to pipeline cloud compute node together
  • Learn to integrate Azure files with multiple applications
  • Understand the tradeoffs between standard/premium storage and unmanaged/managed disks
