About the course

Organizations are looking to the cloud for simpler and more cost-effective solutions, and cloud storage is no exception. All of that data has to be stored somewhere, and it needs to be stored securely!

This course will show you exactly how to configure and secure Azure Files and Azure File Sync, with lots of hands-on demos along the way. After completing the course, you’ll be able to:

  • Know which storage solution to use, based on your requirements
  • Configure storage accounts
  • Configure storage redundancy
  • Secure Azure storage accounts
  • Deploy Azure Files
  • Deploy Azure File Sync

To get the most out of the course we recommend that you have some hands-on experience with Azure, but you don’t need to be a guru. If you’re a cloud engineer looking to deploy Azure storage solutions, or if you just want to know more about cloud storage in general, this is the course for you.
