This hands-on lab provides some experience with configuring and securing an Azure storage account. We log into the Azure portal and create a storage account, then get familiar with the configuration options for it, including replication options, access tiers, and secure transfers. We RDP into a Windows VM and install Microsoft Azure Storage Explorer. Then we connect to Blob storage, and attempt to upload and retrieve data from the blob. Using the Azure Portal, we use access policies and shared access signatures to both permit access to the storage account and deny access to blob data. Subsequent attempts to upload and retrieve data from blob storage should fail. Completing the lab provides the experience required to configure and secure an Azure Storage account.

What are Hands-On Labs?

Hands-On Labs are scenario-based learning environments where learners can practice without consequences. Don't compromise a system or waste money on expensive downloads. Practice real-world skills without the real-world risk, no assembly required.
