Abstract

Microsoft Azure Storage is a cloud storage system that provides customers the flexibility to store huge amount of data, and it can be stored for any duration. This uniqueness of the data that is stored here is that you can access the data anywhere and at anytime. It’s also a utility-based storage system (i.e., you pay for what you use and what you store). In Microsoft Azure Storage, the data is durable due to the local replication and geographic replication that enables disaster recovery. The storage consists of blobs (user's files), tables (structured storage), and queues (messaging). The data is highly durable, available, and massively scalable. It is exposed through REST APIs, client libraries in .NET, Java, Node.js, Python, PHP, Ruby.
