AzureFunBytes - Episode 1 - Jay covers Azure Storage and solves three problems using it.

This week I discuss the fundamentals of Azure storage in this live session. I take you through a few real-world problems and find some solutions.

We'll cover Azures Storage and solve three problems using it.

How do I create a static web site using blob storage?

Simple websites sometimes need simple solutions to host them. If you have a static website and just need to host some HTML and images, Azure blob storage allows you to easily enable static web hosting. You can keep costs low, customize your URL, integrate a Content Delivery Network to serve quickly and do so all while ensuring developers can deploy easily.

How can I store objects for my app in the cloud?

If you need to store a large amount of objects in the cloud, like pictures, videos, logs or any other kinds of unstructured data, using a storage blob on Azure is a perfect option. I walk through the steps of creating a storage account, creating the blob container, uploading the content and eventually accessing my https available object.

How do I increase storage on an Azure Linux Virtual Machine?

An Azure Linux VM is still a computer. That means the storage on the system may get filled for various reasons. We can use the Azure Disk option to add managed block storage to increase the amount of disk available. We'll add some additional storage, mount it and ensure it's available after reboot.

I take questions and give you a start with code and procedure to deploy it.
