The AZ-204: Developing Azure Storage Solutions Competency benchmark measures your ability to implement partitioning schemes and partition keys, perform operations on data and Cosmos DB containers, and manage change feed notifications. You will be evaluated on your skills to move items in Blob Storage between storage accounts or containers, perform operations on data by using the appropriate SDK, implement storage policies, and use data archiving and retention. A learner who scores high on this benchmark demonstrates that they have the skills to develop solutions that use Cosmos DB storage and blob storage.
