While serving content from Azure Blob storage directly is feasible, it may not be the best fit in all scenarios. In this course, Microsoft Azure Developer: Implementing CDNs for Storage, you will gain the ability to integrate Azure CDN with Azure Blob Storage containers. First, you will learn how Azure CDN works and what scenarios it excels at. Next, you will discover how to configure Azure CDN on top of a blob storage container using common Azure tools and SDKs. Finally, you will explore how to maintain storage security with SAS token authentication. When you’re finished with this course, you will have the skills and knowledge of Azure CDN needed to effectively enable serving content from your Azure Blob Storage account.
Course Overview Hi everyone, my name is Kamran Ayub, and welcome to my course, Implementing CDNs for Storage, part of the Microsoft Azure Developer course catalog, here at Pluralsight. I'm a technologist, speaker, and, of course, Pluralsight author based in the Midwest, and I've been working with Azure throughout most of my career, so I'm excited to bring you this course. Azure's content delivery network, CDN, product provides a high-performance, scalable edge network to serve your content efficiently, and even create advanced rules to manage user access. I'm going to be talking about how to implement Azure CDN with Azure Blob service, and since I love being hands on, there's going to be plenty of demos. We'll learn how to integrate Azure CND with Azure Storage and cover topics like key CDN concepts and billing scenarios; automation with Azure tools and SDKs; authenticating with shared access signature, or SAS, tokens; and exploring the static website feature. By the end of this course, you'll be able to implement and develop solutions that integrate Azure CDN with Azure Storage, both in public and private authentication scenarios. Before beginning the course, you should be familiar with how Azure works and how to create and manage Azure Storage accounts, but you don't need to be familiar with Azure CDN. I hope you'll join me on this journey to learn about Azure CDN with the Implementing CDNs for Storage course at Pluralsight.
