Azure Storage is Microsoft's cloud storage solution for modern data storage scenarios. Azure Storage offers a massively scalable object store for data objects, a file system service for the cloud, a messaging store for reliable messaging and a NoSQL store.
Durable and highly available
Redundancy ensures that your data is safe in the event of transient hardware failures. You can also opt to replicate data across datacentres or geographical regions for additional protection from local catastrophes or natural disasters. Data replicated in this way remains highly available in the event of an unexpected outage.
All data written to Azure Storage is encrypted by the service. Azure Storage provides you with fine grained control over who has access to your data.
Azure Storage is designed to be massively scalable to meet the data storage and performance needs of today's applications.
Microsoft Azure handles hardware maintenance, updates and critical issues for you.
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.
