Description

Most applications need to store files, content, and data in unstructured and semi-structured storage along with the relational data you would store in a database such as Microsoft SQL Azure. Windows Azure Storage provides a highly resilient and scalable storage service along with other capabilities like content delivery/distribution and content upload capabilities. In this session we cover what the capabilities are, when and how you should use these capabilities in your applications, and what tools and techniques you should use to manage your content. Finally, we take a look at new capabilities that will be delivered in upcoming releases of Windows Azure. #TEAZR306

    Just about the most USEFUL and HELPFUL presentations I've ever had from MS. Thanks for this Jai ... I learned a great deal, including some very important tips that I can build into my apps right now for faster and more reliable code! I especially appreciated the section on working with table storage, as I'm about to move at least a dozen tables from SQL Azure into table storage. Great Job! Thanks again.
