Sending large amounts of data to or from your data cloud storage can be expensive due to long wait times or metered connections. In this course, Import and Export Data to Microsoft Azure, you’ll gain the knowledge you need to work with Microsoft Azure to send and receive data by using the shipping method and the WAImportExport tool. First, you’ll learn about disk encryption using Bitlocker. Then, you'll explore how to backup and ship keys, how to create Blob and General Purpose accounts, and how to import and export data to and from these accounts. Finally, you'll see how to ship hard drives using Microsoft standards. When finished with this course, you’ll have the skills and knowledge to properly import and export data to Microsoft Azure using Microsoft processes and procedures.

Course Overview
Hello, my name is Robert McMillen. I would like to welcome you to my course, Import and Export Data to Microsoft Azure. Microsoft Azure is made up of a powerful set of application tools used by organizations worldwide. Sometimes we need to move large amounts of data either to or from our Microsoft Azure storage accounts. On a metered connection, this could be quite expensive. Microsoft has created a way to dramatically reduce those costs by importing and exporting through physical transport by shipping companies like FedEx and DHL. We can do this securely by using a combination of BitLocker, for secure encryption, and the WAImportExport tool, which is freely available from Microsoft. We create import or export jobs to send our data either to Azure or from Azure back to us. Using this secure procedure, any organization can safely send or receive their data through delivery services and onto the medium of their choice. By the end of this course, you'll be able to send or receive data as needed through the import/export process. You'll learn how to save your company time and money through this process, and do it in a way that won't compromise your client data. I hope you'll join me in learning these very powerful procedures in my course, Import and Export Data to Azure.
