Description

Creating highly available and durable resources is crucial to any cloud-based infrastructure. Every cloud service may contain failure points that must be identified ahead of time and planned accordingly to ensure the uptime of the infrastructure in case of disaster. Azure offers storage solutions that are highly available and redundant in case of a regional outage. The purpose of using redundant storage is to achieve maximum value out of available services while leveraging geo-replication features that ensure the best performance and availability for the service.

In this hands-on lab, you will learn about various types of storage accounts to use for high availability and perform a failover test on a storage account.

Upon completion of this intermediate-level lab, you will be able to:

  • Understand the storage types to choose for high-availability
  • Understand the failover process for storage endpoints
