Microsoft Azure – Implementing Infrastructure Solutions: Storage and PaaS Cloud

This course is included in our On-demand training solution.


Azure storage makes data accessible in a number of ways. The core structures in Azure are tables, queues, and blob containers. Azure also provides Recovery Services for failover, backup, and recovery for data and sites. PaaS cloud is a model for hosting apps on Azure. It is modular and elastic and well suited to providing mobile services. In this course, you will learn about Azure storage, from blobs to backup, and PaaS implementation. This course is one of a series in the Skillsoft learning path that covers the objectives for Microsoft exam 70-533: Implementing Microsoft Azure Infrastructure Solutions. This exam completes the requirement for Microsoft Specialist certification in Microsoft Azure.

Target Audience

Seasoned implementers of Azure infrastructure solutions with experience in implementation and monitoring of on- and off-premises solutions and lifecycle management
