Ready for the real environment experience?
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.
Upon completion of this lab you will be able to:
- Perform Azure Resource Manager (ARM) template deployments with PowerShell
- Create and manage Blob, Table, and Queue storage with PowerShell
- Learn how to asynchronously copy blobs
- Generate SAS tokens for securing storage access
- Rotate and regenerate storage account keys
You should be familiar with:
- Azure Storage concepts
- Microsoft Windows operating system basics
- PowerShell and .NET familiarity are beneficial, but not required
Before completing the Lab instructions, the environment will look as follows:
