Learning Azure Storage for Developers

via LinkedIn Learning


Get an overview of Microsoft Azure Storage, the highly scalable and secure PaaS. Explore key security and deployment topics and review the storage options available to developers.

Azure Storage is an important part of the Microsoft Azure developer toolkit. In this course, Anton Delsink provides a high-level overview of what Azure Storage is, as well as a brief look at the options available to developers: table, file, queue, and blob-based storage. Anton starts the course with a tour of the Azure portal and an explanation of how to create both a general-purpose storage account and a Blob storage account. Next, he covers important security and deployment topics that apply across all storage options. To wrap up, he briefly goes over each storage area.
