and his next lesson. We're going to take a look at some different programmatic access options for storage accounts.
Our objectives include We're going to review the data movement library in the azure storage rest a P I.
First, let's take a look at the data movement library.
This is theatrics storage data movement, library for your dot net applications.
This is actually based on the same framework that powers ese copy the utility we looked at and their previous lesson. You can use this library to develop high performance, reliable and easy data transfer operations inside your application.
Basically, what you could do is incorporate ese copy features natively inside your application. Let's jump over to the documentation. Take a quick look at some notes for it.
The Azure Storage Data Movement Library for dot Net is actually stored out and get hub, and this is the page for it. So it's girl down a little bit and take a look at the Read me here.
This is explaining. The library is used for incorporating ese copy functionality inside your application. Some of the features we have are working with our blobs and files, as well as tracking data transfers, setting access conditions or even recovering data transfers.
After taking a look at the features, there is a brief getting started option here talks about some of the requirements going to need a certain version of the dot net framework. And if you need to download this library, you can use the git clone utility to download or even include it inside your application as a new get download.
Finally, down here at the bottom, we have a few code examples, and there's more in the sample folder. Inside this repository, we can take a look at uploading blobs connecting to our storage accounts and then even copy and blobs programmatically. Obviously, you can use this library inside your application to create your own version of the A Z copy command line utility.
Let's jump back over to the slides
now Remember, from our previous lesson, ese copy can only be used for containers and are foul share services. So what if we need to ride an application that utilizes cues or tables?
This is where azure storage rest AP I comes in. This is gonna be used for programmatic access to blob skews tables and our file services insider storage accounts.
You would use this method to access all your stores services via rest API eyes. And this means you can use them inside services inside azure or over the Internet, using http requests
that does it for this lesson. Pretty light on content. Just wanted to cover some of the programmatic ways you can access your storage accounts. Hopefully, if you're not a developer, you still found that interesting and just know it's available. I'm not a programmer, but it's good to know those things were there. And you can develop applications around your storage accounts. In this video. We took a look at reviewing the data movement library,
and we reviewed our azure storage dressed ap I go. Next, we're gonna take a look at the last lesson inside this module. We're gonna understand our import export services inside Azure. See you in the next episode.
