Managing and Maintaining Azure Storage
I don’t need a hard disk in my computer if I can get to the server faster (…) carrying around these non-connected computers is byzantine by comparison.
—Steve Jobs (late chairman and co-founder, Apple)
Storage is something that we have been using since the invention of computers. Also, cloud storage, or Internet storage—name it whatever you want—is something that we have been using since the invention of the Internet.
In fact, cloud storage became very popular because it is useful, efficient, and cost-effective compared to local storage, especially with the huge growth in Internet speed.
