Azure Storage Services in the Enterprise!


In Part 1, we will walk through the basics of Azure storage for those new to Azure or seeking to gain some knowledge into how Azure storage works, how it’s used throughout Azure and options to use it indirectly from other Azure services or from your own code.  While storage is a relatively simple concept to comprehend when dealing with desktop/mobile devices, the cloud introduces some new language and concepts worth understanding before diving into how we can use it to solve an actual customer problem we’ll outline in Part 2.

Topics covered:

Blob Storage

  • Block blobs
  • Page Blobs
  • Append Blobs
  • Azure files

Storage Tiers

  • Hot

Part 2: We walk through how a customer addressed some complex, global, storage requirements using virtual appliance solutions in Azure!
