  15. 15. Files “SMB Access to Azure Storage” Queues “Reliable messaging at scale for cloud services” Azure Queues provide a reliable messaging solution for asynchronous communication between application components, these could be running in the cloud, on the desktop, on an on-premises server, or on a mobile device. Messages typically have a small body with attributes such as a time to live which are used for configuring the service and representing tasks created by the front end “producer” which are in turn processed by the back end “consumer”.
  16. 16. Queues “Reliable messaging at scale for cloud services” Files “SMB Access to Azure Storage” Azure File storage offers cloud-based encrypted SMB file shares allowing customers to easily migrate legacy applications to Azure quickly and without costly rewrites. In addition to this, Virtual Machines and cloud services can share file data across application components and with on-premises applications via a simple File service REST API. Azure File Storage offers availability, scalability and Geo Redundancy allowing you to confidently store your server data, log files, event data and backups in the cloud.

  18. 18. Azure IaaS: Replication and High Availability LRS ZRS GRS RAGRS When you create a storage account, you must select one of the following replication options Maintains three copies of your data within a single facility. LRS protects your data from normal hardware failures, but not from the failure of a single facility. Maintains three copies of your data replicated across two to three facilities, either within a single region or across two regions, providing higher durability than LRS. Maintains six copies of your data, three within the primary region, and three replicated into a secondary region hundreds of miles away. In the event of a failure at the primary region, Azure Storage will failover to the secondary region automatically. Replicates data to a secondary geographic location, and also provides read access to the data hosted in the secondary location.

  20. 20. Take aways • Many different forms of storage in Azure • Most common IaaS options will be Blob and File storage • Storage can also be placed on a tier (hot, cool, archive) • Pricing varies depending on tier select i.e. Premium if more expensive than archive. • Azure Storage Explorer is a handy tool
