If you have been reading this blog regularly, that you know that eventually, everything is going to move to the cloud. However, it does not mean, that you start moving everything to the cloud now. The word eventually is not associated with any timeline. It can be a week, month or maybe years. As long as I think, on-premises deployments are going to be here for many years to come while some essential elements starting to move to the cloud. If you ask me where to start moving to the cloud, I will say one should start moving to the cloud by Designing a Data Archiving Strategy on Microsoft Azure.
Designing a Data Archiving Strategy on Microsoft Azure
I have recently released a new course on Pluralsight which is precisely on the topic of designing a data archiving strategy on Microsoft Azure. While we all want to move our primary workload to the cloud, it is not possible to move for many organizations immediately. However, you can take small steps to move to the cloud. The very first step you can do is to move the data which you want to archive on the cloud. I have built a specific course discussing some of the most important aspects of moving to the cloud.
If you need to design and implement a data archiving solution using the Microsoft Azure platform, it is important to have a basic understanding of core concepts. In this course, Designing a Data Archiving Strategy on Microsoft Azure, you will learn about common business and legal requirements for data archiving and how to use available tools and services. First, you will learn about the use cases for data archiving and enabling enterprise compliance. Next, you will explore transferring data to Azure storage, and learn more about Azure tiered storage. Finally, you will discover Azure storage pricing considerations, and look at creating lifecycle policies for Azure blob storage. By the end of this course, you will start designing your own data archiving strategy with Microsoft Azure and also learn how you can do that in the Azure portal.
