Azure Storage is an important part of the Microsoft Azure developer toolkit. In this course, Anton Delsink provides a high-level overview of what Azure Storage is, as well as a brief look at the options available to developers: table, file, queue, and blob-based storage. Anton starts the course with a tour of the Azure portal and an explanation of how to create both a general-purpose storage account and a Blob storage account. Next, he covers important security and deployment topics that apply across all storage options. To wrap up, he briefly goes over each storage area.
