Explore Azure Storage queues, a means of passing messages among components by using a queue structure for scenarios such as store-and-forward.
- [Instructor] Azure Storage Queues…is essentially a queuing service built on Azure Storage.…It's one of the fundamental storage features of Azure.…And we use it for essentially email between applications.…If you're familiar with Microsoft Message Queuing,…or MQSeries, or Service Bus,…then you already know Azure Storage queues.…Now, bear in mind Azure Storage Queues…are a lot simpler, much more of a fundamental service…than MSMQ, MQSeries, or even Service Bus.…Those are very rich in their APIs,…where a Storage queue is pretty straightforward.…
Now, if you want to use Storage queues…you have many different client libraries.…And if you find a language that doesn't have…a client library you could still talk…to the Azure Storage queues using the REST API directly.…So, what are Azure Storage queues good for?…Well, they're great in many different use cases.…In general terms we will talk about decoupling components.…The idea of taking two components instead…of them communicating with each other directly,…to rather place a queue in-between them…

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.
