Azure Storage


Before moving into Azure Data Factory (ADF), we need some general knowledge regarding Azure storage. The ADF can Extract and Load data from Azure storage.
So, it is necessary to take little bit of knowledge about it.


Type of Azure Storage

 There are two type of Azure Storage

ü  Azure Standard Storage

ü  Azure Premium Storage



Azure Standard Storage Account

Blog Storage
Blog Storage is basically storage for unstructured data that can include pictures, videos, music files, documents, raw data, and log data…along with their meta-data. Blobs are stored in a directory-like structure called a “container”. We can store any number of blob files up to a total size of 500 TB and we can also apply security policies.

Azure Table Storage
Table storage, as the name indicates, is preferred for tabular data, which is ideal for key-value NoSQL data storage. Table Storage is massively scalable and extremely easy to use.
Azure File Storage
Azure File Storage is meant for legacy applications. Azure VMs and services share their data via mounted file shares, while on-premise applications access the files using the File Service REST API. Azure File Storage offers file shares in the cloud using the standard SMB protocol and supports both SMB 3.0 and SMB 2.1.
Azure Queue Storage
The Queue Storage service is used to exchange messages between components either in the cloud or on-premise (compare to Amazon’s SQS). We can store large numbers of messages to be shared between independent components of applications and communicated asynchronously via HTTP or HTTPS. Typical use cases of Queue Storage include processing backlog messages or exchanging messages between Azure Web roles and Worker roles.

Azure Premium Storage account

The Azure Premium Storage service is the most recent storage offering from Microsoft, in which data are stored in Solid State Drives (SSDs) for better IO and throughput. Premium storage only supports Page Blobs.

Hope you like it.
