Implement Data Archiving and Retention in Azure Blob Storage
In this lab, you’ll practice transitioning blobs between the hot, cool, and archive tiers, and setting up Lifecycle Management Policies. When you’re done with this lab, you’ll have used the Azure Cloud Shell to move a blob from one tier to another.
Terms and conditions apply.
Start the Azure Cloud Shell
You will open up a PowerShell prompt from which you will later issue commands to modify blob storage.
Transition Blobs to Cool and Archive Tiers
First, you will get an overview of the structure of the pre-configured storage container, and then you will transition the blobs in the public container to the cool tier, and the blobs in the archive container to the archive tier using Powershell.
Set up Lifecycle Management Policies
You will set up a lifecycle management policy to automatically transition blobs in the public container to the cool tier if they have not been modified for 30 days, and to the archive tier if they have not been modified for 90 days.
Provided environment for hands-on practice
We will provide the credentials and environment necessary for you to practice right within your browser.
Follow along with the author’s guided walkthrough and build something new in your provided environment!
