New to cloud storage ?

You’ve come to the right place. Azure Storage offloads the heavy lifting of datacenter management. Plus, no more capital expense for new hardware, just flexible cloud options you pay for as you need them.  The Azure Storage platform is Microsoft's cloud storage solution for modern data storage scenarios. Core storage services offer a massively scalable object store for data objects, disk storage for Azure virtual machines (VMs), a file system service for the cloud, a messaging store for reliable messaging, and a NoSQL store.   

Highly Availablily 
Redundancy ensures that your data is safe in the event of transient hardware failures. You can also opt to replicate data across datacenters or geographical regions for additional protection from local catastrophe or natural disaster. Data replicated in this way remains highly available in the event of an unexpected outage. Secure All data written to an Azure storage account is encrypted by the service. Azure Storage provides you with fine-grained control over who has access to your data. Scalable Azure Storage is designed to be massively scalable to meet the data storage and performance needs of today's applications. Managed Azure handles hardware maintenance, updates, and critical issues for you. Accessible Data in Azure Storage is accessible from anywhere in the world over HTTP or HTTPS. Microsoft provides client libraries for Azure Storage in a variety of languages, including .NET, Java, Node.js, Python, PHP, Ruby, Go, and others, as well as a mature REST API. Azure Storage supports scripting in Azure PowerShell or Azure CLI. And the Azure portal and Azure Storage Explorer offer easy visual solutions for working with your data.

The Azure Storage platform includes the following core storage services

File Storage: Azure Files enables you to set up highly available network file shares that can be accessed by using the standard Server Message Block (SMB) protocol. That means that multiple VMs can share the same files with both read and write access. You can also read the files using the REST interface or the storage client libraries. One thing that distinguishes Azure Files from files on a corporate file share is that you can access the files from anywhere in the world using a URL that points to the file and includes a shared access signature (SAS) token. You can generate SAS tokens; they allow specific access to a private asset for a specific amount of time. Take advantage of fully managed file shares in the cloud that are accessible via the industry-standard Server Message Block (SMB) protocol. Mount file shares concurrently in the cloud or on-premises on Windows, Linux, and macOS. Plus, cache Azure file shares on Windows Servers with Azure File Sync for local access performance. Use premium shares for performance-sensitive, IO intensive workloads and standard shares for reliable, general purpose file storage. 

Disk Storage: for every workload An Azure managed disk is a virtual hard disk (VHD). You can think of it like a physical disk in an on-premises server but, virtualized. Azure-managed disks are stored as page blobs, which are a random IO storage object in Azure. We call a managed disk 'managed' because it is an abstraction over page blobs, blob containers, and Azure storage accounts. With managed disks, all you have to do is provision the disk, and Azure takes care of the rest. Get disk storage options for any virtual machine (VM) workload. Experience best-in-class throughput and speed as well as consistent low latency for building databases, scaling and running mission-critical apps, and working with development testing scenarios. Get the durability, scalability, availability, and security you need for all of your data—from test scenarios to mission-critical workloads. Use Azure Ultra Disk Storage when you need sub-millisecond latency and extremely scalable performance, Azure Premium SSD for production workloads, and Azure Standard SSD for cost-effective and consistent performance. 

Blob Storage: Azure Blob storage is Microsoft's object storage solution for the cloud. Blob storage is optimized for storing massive amounts of unstructured data, such as text or binary data. Azure Blob Storage helps you create data lakes for your analytics needs, and provides storage to build powerful cloud-native and mobile apps. Optimize costs with tiered storage for your long-term data, and flexibly scale up for high-performance computing and machine learning workloads.
