Understanding Azure Storage

  • Azure Storage gives us a very scalable and highly available solution.
  • You can store hundreds of TB of data and you pay for the storage used
  • Why should we use Azure Storage
    • Global Presence
    • Redundancy & Recovery
    • Many flavors
    • Pay as you go.

Azure Storage Types

  • Azure has many types & sub types of Storage.
  • The most common types of azure Storage can be classified on the following factors
    • Durability (replication):

      • Azure Storage is durable & supports data replication; therefore you make sure your storage is highly available
      • Replication ensures your data is copied somewhere else (in same datacenter, different datacenter, different region)
      • Refer Here for SLA Details
      • Replication Types:
        • Locally redundant Storage (LRS): Preview
        • Zone redundant Storage Preview
        • Geo-Redundant Storage (GRS) Preview
        • Read-access geo redundant storage (RA-GRS): data i.e. replicated to other region will have Read access
    • Performance:

      • Standard Storage:
        • This stores the data in non-SSD Disks
      • Premium Storage
        • This is designed for applications which require low latency for storage. Premium storage is stored on SSD disks
    • Persistency: This is all about whether data will be persisted (present) when your vm is stopping & starting

      • Persistent Storage
      • Non-Persistent Storage

Azure Storage Account

  • This is a service that provides access to azure storage.
  • Each storage account should have unique name
  • Creating a Storage Account
