Description

Lab Overview

Working with Azure Storage using PowerShell, you will get hands-on experience with different types of storage available in Azure Storage. You will set up an image storage account that stores raw images as block blobs. An Azure Table is used to store metadata about the raw images and provides support for querying the images. An Azure Queue is used to store thumbnail requests. You will use PowerShell to connect all the parts and generate Shared Access Signature (SAS) tokens for accessing the images.
