In this lab, we explore tiers (hot, cool, and archive) in Azure Blob. After completing this lab, there’s the opportunity to explore automating the movement of blobs through tiers.
Successfully complete this lab by achieving the following learning objectives:
- Create and Configure a Storage Account
For the first task, we need to create a storage account with the following properties:
- (US) West US location
- Standard performance
- Hot Access tier
- Hierarchical namespace disabled
- Create a test container
Populate with the sample file (https://github.com/microsoft/Windows-classic-samples).
- Configure Lifecycle Management
In Azure Storage, configure Lifecycle management to move unused blobs from hot to cool tiers after 30 days of inactivity and cool to archive after 180 days of inactivity.
