In this course, you will be learning about various storage services available on on Microsoft Azure cloud platform. Storage is the first thing to learn when you are building your career around cloud computing. You can create different kinds of storage on Azure- from file storage to object storage, from structured table to unstructured and file storage, and much more. Whether you are building a web application, mobile application or migrating your assets on the cloud, you need to integrate storage, because it allows you to harness the real power of cloud- Scalability. There's almost no upper limit on size of data that you can store and host on cloud. Storage services are one of the key topics that is relevant for almost every Cloud certifications, so if you are preparing of any of the Certification exams on azure, this course could help you grasp key storage skills expected.
We would be creating resources for BloB and File storage. Each storage option is suitable for certain domain and we can decide what to choose based on price, availability, reliability, application, SLA provided, elasticity, retention period, hot/cold or archive option, etc. You will be learning various storage services-
You can create Massively scalable and secure object storage for cloud-native workloads, archives, data lakes, high-performance computing and machine learning.
It is a hybrid cloud storage solution on Microsoft Azure, which provides a cloud based storage infrastructure used for storing, accessing and managing large quantities of data.
You can create high-performance, highly durable block storage for your mission- and business-critical workloads.
You can create Simple, secure and fully managed cloud file shares. Mount file shares concurrently in the cloud or on-premises on Windows, Linux and macOS. Plus, cache Azure file shares on Windows Servers with Azure File Sync for local access performance.
You can store large amounts of structured data. The service is a NoSQL datastore which accepts authenticated calls from inside and outside the Azure cloud. Azure tables are ideal for storing structured, non-relational data.
It provides simple, secure, and cost-effective solutions to back up your data and recover it from the Microsoft Azure cloud.
Data Lake Storage
It includes all the capabilities required to make it easy for developers, data scientists and analysts to store data of any size, shape and speed, and do all types of processing and analytics across platforms and languages. It removes the complexities of ingesting and storing all of your data while making it faster to get up and running with batch, streaming and interactive analytics.
It is a service for storing large numbers of messages. You access messages from anywhere in the world via authenticated calls using HTTP or HTTPS. A queue message can be up to 64 KB in size. A queue may contain millions of messages, up to the total capacity limit of a storage account. Queues are commonly used to create a backlog of work to process asynchronously.
You can create low-cost, durable and highly available secure cloud storage for rarely accessed data with flexible latency requirements. Store terabytes of data in the cloud for only a few dollars a month and repurpose your storage infrastructure for other critical business objectives.
