Microsoft Azure Blob storage is a container system for storing a variety of file types. In this course, you'll learn about the capabilities of blob storage and how to architect a deployment for optimal performance and scalability. Then, you'll explore the options for redundancy and how to recover from disasters. You'll discover where Azure Data Lake Storage Gen2, a feature set within blob storage, can be utilized for big data operations. You'll also learn how to plan for a data lake deployment, examine best practices, and explore how to deploy a Data Lake Gen2 account on Azure. This course is one in a collection that prepares learners for the Microsoft Data Engineering on Microsoft Azure (DP-203) exam.
