Course Overview
Hi, and welcome to this course for Microsoft Azure developers on choosing a storage solution. 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. There are 100 or more reasons to embrace cloud storage for modern applications. The data that our users generate needs to feel to the user like it's everywhere at once, and that's where Azure Storage takes the stage. In this course, I'm going to help you to understand what cloud storage is and when and why to use it. I'll compare the various storage types in Azure, and I'll show you when to use one over another. I'll also show you how to set up your storage account in Azure and even give you a primer on implementing your storage using the REST API. Finally, beyond simply turning on cloud storage and starting to read and write data, there are a number of performance tunings and considerations that you'll need to make to tweak the scale and cost of your solution, so we'll cover these intricacies of the service as well. By the end of this course, you'll be able to make architectural decisions about how Azure Storage fits into modern applications. You don't need too much experience before beginning this course, but if you have some familiarity with building client apps or web apps, it'll help you to understand the problems that cloud storage solves. Now, when you're done with this course, I recommend you look into some specific courses on implementing blobs, files, tables, and queues in Azure. So please join me in this Pluralsight course learning about choosing a storage solution in Azure.
