>> Hi everyone. Welcome back.
00:00
In this lecture, we're going to be talking
00:00
about Azure Storage Explorer.
00:00
We want to understand and learn what Azure Explorer is,
00:00
and we're going to talk a little bit about what
00:00
it does and how it works.
00:00
Azure Storage Explorer is
00:00
a standalone application that you can
00:00
install on your local workstation
00:00
or your server, wherever you want.
00:00
It's an application that you're going to be running.
00:00
It runs on Windows,
00:00
it runs on MacOS,
00:00
and it runs on Linux.
00:00
This application is something that
00:00
you're going to be able to use to
00:00
interact with your various storage services
00:00
that are within your storage account in Azure.
00:00
Think of this as
00:00
the on-premise application or
00:00
the application that sits on
00:00
your workstation that allows you to upload documents to
00:00
your Azure Blob or your Azure File Share.
00:00
You can delete files, you can read files from it,
00:00
you can manipulate your files however you want,
00:00
right there within your laptop
00:00
or your workstation; wherever you are,
00:00
if you're on the go you can do that right
00:00
from this Storage Explorer application,
00:00
which is really handy.
00:00
It's actually pretty neat. Another cool thing here with
00:00
Azure Storage Explorer is that you can manage
00:00
multiple storage accounts across
00:00
>> multiple subscriptions.
00:00
>> Remember going back to the conversation
00:00
about these tiers of
00:00
the different ways that you can handle these solutions.
00:00
You can use this application
00:00
to seamlessly hop between storage accounts.
00:00
If you have multiple teams
00:00
that you're working in and you got
00:00
to take a look and hop
00:00
between different storage accounts,
00:00
between different blobs or whatever,
00:00
you can easily do that with
00:00
this application without having to go
00:00
through the console and work through a clunky browser,
00:00
you can do this all within an application.
00:00
It makes it very fast and very easy and efficient.
00:00
With Storage Explorer, it can connect using resources.
00:00
You'll be using Azure AD.
00:00
It does use a connection string,
00:00
it can use a SAS URI,
00:00
so you can't be going back to that conversation
00:00
about shared access signature,
00:00
URIs, you can't connect it that way.
00:00
You can use a name and key pair, a local emulator.
00:00
If you're going to be interacting with Cosmos DB,
00:00
you can use a connection string,
00:00
and if you're interacting with Azure Data Lakes,
00:00
you can use a URI for that as well.
00:00
All right everyone. This was a brief one,
00:00
really just to touch on and help you understand what
00:00
Azure Storage Explorer is and what it does.
00:00
There again, is an application
00:00
that you can install on your workstation.
00:00
You're going to be able to use
00:00
this client to interact with
00:00
the various storage solutions
00:00
that are going to be offered
00:00
inside your Azure storage accounts
00:00
and your subscriptions,
00:00
so just keep that in mind.
00:00
This is something that is just really an application.
00:00
I think really you're just going to need to
00:00
understand what this application does,
00:00
what it's limitations and restrictions are,
00:00
but if you have any further questions,
00:00
feel free to reach out to me, and if not,
00:00
I'll see you in the next
00:00
lecture where we're going to be talking
00:00
about Azure Data Box. I'll see you there.
