In this hands-on lab, we are going to utilize AzCopy to migrate data from one storage account to another. This is an important task because there will be a lot of scenarios within your day-to-day duties as an Azure Administrator in which you will have to migrate data from your on-premises environment to the Azure cloud, migrate data from one Azure Storage account to another Azure Storage account, and migrate data from your Azure Storage account to your on-premises environment. We are going to complete this task by utilizing AzCopy and also Azure Storage Explorer. After completing this lab, you will be familiar with AzCopy and the different switches associated with it, know how to copy files from on-premises to the Azure Cloud using AzCopy, copy files between different storage accounts, and view storage content with Storage Explorer.
