Exercise

  • Create a storage account in Azure with the following containers
    • videos
    • music
    • images
    • docs
  • Add some sample file into the storage account containers

Activities:

  1. Upload the content and ensure your containers are private
  2. Enable versioning
  3. Setup object replication to other storage account
  4. Create a lifecycle rule to move objects older than 30 days to cool tier

Considerations

  • When we setup azure storage account for the application or backups to hold, if it is one time activity, we can use Portal to set up.

  • But if creating storage accounts is done repetitively then creating and configuring storage accounts from portal might not be sensible option

  • We need to create some kind of automated approach of creating and managing storage account.

  • To perform these kind of automated actions, Azure provides

    • Azure CLI
    • Azure PowerShell
    • Azure SDK
  • Installing/Configuring Azure CLI/PowerShell Refer Here

  • Setting up Visual Studio Code for Azure CLI Preview Preview

  • Alternative for Azure CLI and PowerShell, Launch Azure Cloud Shell Preview Preview Preview Preview
