- [Anton] Now that you've heard…of Azure Storage capabilities, in general,…the next step is to go in-depth.…There are four more courses,…each one taking a deep dive into Azure Storage,…specifically, going into Azure Storage Blobs in-depth…by looking at the API and the unique capabilities of blobs.…Then there is Azure Storage Files,…where Azure Storage looks like and behaves like…a fileshare, but we can access those files…either programmatically, through a REST API,…as well as through traditional SMB…or net use-style semantics.…
Then there is Azure Storage Queues,…which is equivalent to email for applications.…If you think in terms of a queuing system…through which we can send and receive messages,…similar to how we send and receive messages…through an email mailbox.…And then there is Azure Storage Tables, which is…how we manage structured data in Azure Storage.…And I blink the use of a schemaless but structured datastore…in the NoSQL-style of things.…This is also the precursor to Cosmos DB,…for which there's additional courses worth looking into.…

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. For a more in-depth exploration of each storage area—files, tables, blobs, and queues—check out additional courses in the Azure Storage for Developers series.
