Windows Azure Storage Part I — Blobs

  • Tejaswi Redkar


The previous chapter covered the computational and management features of Windows Azure. In this chapter, you learn about Windows Azure’s Storage service feature. Windows Azure Storage is a scalable, highly available, and durable service to store any kind of application data. The Storage service provides you with the ability to store data in three different types of storage types: blobs, queues, and tables. Each storage type has advantages; depending on the application requirements, you can choose the appropriate storage type for your data. You can also use multiple storage types within the same application.
