Implement Partitioning with Azure
This course will teach you the data partitioning and sharding strategies in relational as well as non-relational cloud stores. Analyze data distribution before migration to Azure.
What you'll learn
Partitioning is an important strategy to segregate the data based on the partition key and distribute the data evenly across partitions for efficient querying and analysis.
In this course, Implement Partitioning with Azure, you’ll learn to apply efficient partitioning, sharding, and data distribution techniques over Azure Cloud Portal for specific services:
- explore how to design non-relational data stores
- discover designing relational data stores
- learn how to implement partitioning and sharding strategies over Azure Synapse
