Course Overview Hey everyone. This is Mike Pfeiffer, and welcome to Designing a Data Archiving Strategy on Microsoft Azure. In this course we'll take a look at the design considerations you should keep in mind when planning to store data on the Azure platform for archival purposes. To get started, we'll talk about the requirements for data archiving that you need to think about, and we'll explore the use cases for long term data retention on Azure. We'll take a look at how you can replace traditional backup solutions with Azure services, and we'll dive into archival scenarios for individual files, enterprise compliance, and how you can transfer your data into Azure Storage. Next, we'll move on to designing your data archiving solution, and you'll learn about the different storage tiers available in Azure. So you'll see how to work with storage accounts, and how to make sure that your storage is configured to support archiving objects in Azure Storage. We'll discuss pricing considerations that could impact your design, we'll see how lifecycle policies can be used to move data between different storage tiers in Azure, and we'll also explore design considerations for building an archiving solution for on-premises servers. So if you're new to Azure backup and storage, and you need to start designing your own data archiving strategy with Microsoft Azure, this course is definitely for you.
