This course teaches delegates how to implement Azure storage solutions for a variety of scenarios. Delegates learn about the different storage accounts and services as well as basic data replication concepts and available replication schemes. Delegates are also introduced to Storage Explorer as a convenient way to work with Azure storage data, and learn the types of storage and how to work with managed and custom disks.
Azure blob storage is how Azure stores unstructured data in the cloud, and delegates learn how to work with blobs and blob containers. They also learn how to use Azure Files to work with file shares that are accessed via the Server Message Block (SMB) protocol. In addition to blob storage, the course covers Table and Queue storage as storage options for structured data.
Delegates then learn how to secure and manage storage using Shared Access Signatures (SAS) and Azure Backup, using Recovery Services Vault. Next, delegates learn how to use Azure File Sync to centralise an organisation’s file Shares in Azure Files. Content Delivery Network (CDN) is used to store cached content on a distributed network of servers that are close to end users. Delegates learn how to optimise content delivery with Azure CDN, as well as how to transfer large amounts of data using the Azure Import/Export service.
After completing this course, delegates will be able to:
Module 1: Overview of Azure Storage
In this module, you’ll learn about storage accounts – Standard and Premium – as well as storage endpoints and how to configure custom domain accounts. You’ll have an opportunity to practice creating and managing storage accounts. The module also covers data replication and provides a comparison of the different available replication schemes. You’ll be introduced to Azure Storage Explorer, a utility that lets you easily work with and manipulate Azure Storage data.
Module 2: Storage Services
In this module, you’ll learn about the disks component of Azure Storage as it relates to virtual machines. Disks are how virtual machines store their VHD files. You will learn about the types of disks and storage and how Azure simplifies IaaS disk management by creating and managing the storage accounts associated with the virtual machine disks. You will also learn about how Azure blob storage stores unstructured data in the cloud as objects, or blobs (BLOB = binary large object). Azure Files will also be covered, which offers fully managed file shares in the cloud that are accessible via the Server Message Block (SMB) protocol. The other file storage options covered in the module are Tables and Queues for structured storage.
Module 3: Securing and Managing Storage
In this module, discover how a shared access signature (SAS) can be used to provide delegated access to resources in storage accounts, allowing clients access to those resources with sharing the storage account keys. You’ll also learn how to use Azure backup as a cloud-based solution for an existing on-premises or off-site backup and data protection solution. This module also covers Azure File Sync as a way to centralise an organisation’s file shares in Azure Files, and using Windows Server to cache the Azure file share locally, thus enabling scenarios such as “lift and shift,” backup and disaster recovery, and file archiving.
Module 4: Storing and Accessing Data
In this module, you’ll learn about using a content delivery network (CDN) to deliver cached content that is stored on a distributed network of edge servers closer to end-users. You’ll also learn how to transfer large amount of data to and from the cloud using the Azure Import/Export service.
Module 5: Monitoring Storage
In this module, you will learn techniques for monitoring the health of Azure storage. With metrics and alerts you can check a variety of performance metrics and send notifications to your system administrator team. With the Activity Log you can search and query for specific events, even across subscriptions.
This course is for Azure Administrators. Azure Administrators manage the cloud services that span storage, networking, and compute cloud capabilities, with an in-depth understanding of each service across the full IT lifecycle. Azure Administrators use the Azure Portal and as they become more proficient they use PowerShell and the Command Line Interface.
There are no formal prerequisites for this course, but previous experience with operating systems, virtualisation, cloud infrastructure, storage structures, and networking will be beneficial.
