Working with Cloud Queue and Blob Storage

Abstract

Azure Queue and Blob storage services are two basic forms of storage offered by the Azure framework. Another basic cloud storage offered by the Azure framework is table storage, which we covered in the last two chapters. In this chapter we are going to focus on Queue and Blob. Azure Queue messages can be listened for via event subscription. This feature makes Azure Queue a good candidate for building an event-driven distributed system. In this chapter I’ll provide the basic know-how for using these two types of storage, a description of how to use both storage types to build an event-driven distributed system, and a tool for you to load a large stream to cloud Blob storage.
