Azure's File Storage service gives you the power and flexibility you need to bring legacy applications that depend on SMB file shares into the modern cloud era. Learn how to setup, use, fine tune, and measure file storage.
Bringing legacy applications into the modern cloud era often amounts to an expensive rewrite of storage layers that may depend on SMB file shares. In this course, Microsoft Azure Developer: Implementing File Storage, you will gain the ability to implement file shares in Azure that give these legacy apps what they're expecting while also providing a modern REST API. First, you will learn to set your file service up in Azure. Next, you will explore how to manage files through your new service. Finally, you will discover options for fine-tuning the service. When you're finished with this course, you will have the skills and knowledge of cloud storage needed to create great, modern cloud applications.
Course Overview Hi, and welcome to this course for Microsoft Azure developers on Implementing File Storage in Azure. I'm Jeremy Foster. I'm a software engineer at Microsoft, and I spend my days helping developers at enterprise companies to accomplish digital transformation. Azure's File storage service give you the power and flexibility that you need to bring legacy applications into the modern cloud era. Now in this course, I'm going to review Azure storage, introduce you to file shares, and then I'm going to show you how to get it all set up and ready to go. Some of the major topics that we'll cover include, one, setting up file storage using the portal, the command line tool, and the API; two, interacting with files in storage using Windows Explorer on Windows, Bash on Linux, as well as the REST API using Postman, cURL, and the Node. js SDK; and three, using Azure Monitor's REST API to see total ingress and egress for a file share. By the end of this course, you'll know how to set up and connect to a file share in Azure and have it ready for your legacy applications. Before beginning the course, you should be a bit familiar with the various storage options in Azure, so you know where file storage specifically fits in. So please join me as we learn to implement file storage in Azure at Pluralsight.
