FUN50: Storing Data in Azure

Date: 10 Jan 2019
Location: Toronto, Canada
Event name: Microsoft Ignite | The Tour
Duration: 60 minutes


Tailwind Traders deals with gigantic amounts of data, continually pouring in from sources such as sales, marketing, and fulfillment. In the past, the only choice you had was to put it all into a relational database in a data center. By moving to Microsoft Azure, however, we can now optimize our data storage with increased scalability and resilience. This session will introduce attendees to the various storage options available on Azure, from blob right on through to SQL databases. We will introduce Cosmos DB, a globally distributed, multi-model database, as well as SQL Data Warehouse and Data Factory.
