Course Description

Azure storage makes data accessible in a number of ways. The core structures in Azure are tables, queues, and blob containers. Azure also provides Recovery Services for failover, backup, and recovery for data and sites. PaaS cloud is a model for hosting apps on Azure. It is modular and elastic and well suited to providing mobile services. In this course, you will learn about Azure storage, from blobs to backup, and PaaS implementation. This course is one of a series in the Skillsoft learning path that covers the objectives for Microsoft exam 70-533: Implementing Microsoft Azure Infrastructure Solutions. This exam completes the requirement for Microsoft Specialist certification in Microsoft Azure.
