Digital File Management: Introducing Microsoft Azure Storage

Easily share and store your data on Microsoft Azure. Access your files from anywhere safely and scale your storage to your requirements.

Introducing Microsoft Azure Storage Services

Azure is Microsoft’s cloud storage solution for modern data storage. This core storage service offers massive scalability for data objects, disk storage for Microsoft Azure virtual machines, a file system, messaging storage and a multi-modelled database. For that reason, it is an excellent option for a digital file management system. Here are some of the main advantages of Microsoft Azure.

Advantages of Azure

Durable and highly available 

Your data on Azure is safe from transient hardware failure. Furthermore, you can also opt to replicate your data across data centres or geographical regions for additional protection against natural or intentional disasters.


Azure encrypts all of your data and gives you control over who can access your data, making sure you don’t have to worry about security.


Azure can enable you to scale your storage based on your data and performance needs.

Hardware Maintenance

Azure will look after the hardware maintenance, updates and critical issues, so you don’t have to.


Access your Azure data from anywhere in the world. Moreover, this is made easier by allowing client libraries in a variety of languages. Furthermore, the Azure portal and Azure Storage Explorer offers an easy visual solution for working with your data.

Reasons why your small business should use Microsoft Azure

What is the Azure Core Storage Services?

Azure Blobs

Azure Blob is Microsoft’s object storage solution for the cloud. Here, you can store massive amounts of unstructured data, such as text or binary data. Blob storage is ideal for things like:

  • Serving images or documents directly to a browser.
  • Storing files for distributed access.
  • Streaming video and audio.
  • Storing data for backup and restoring, disaster recovery, and archiving.
  • Storing data for analysis by an on-premises or Azure-hosted service.

Azure Files

Set up highly available network file shares. With Azure Files, you can share the same file with both read and write access. You can also access these files from anywhere in the world on multiple virtual machines. You can even control the amount of time someone has access to a private asset. 

Azure Queues

Azure Queue is for storing and retrieving messages. It can be up to 64 KB in size, and the queue can contain millions of messages. 

Azure Tables (Now Azure Cosmos DB)

Here, Azure will help you seamlessly store structured NoSQL data in the cloud. For example, flexible datasets like user data for web applications, address books, device information or other metadata.

Azure Disks

Azure Disks is just a virtual hard disk, which Azure fully manages.
