In this part of my Azure Storage Services series, we are going to cover Azure Table storage and look at how to manage tables and entities using PowerShell.
Azure Table storage is a NoSQL datastore and has some differences compared to traditional relational database (RDB) structure. Here are some facts about table storage:
- It’s not the same concept as SQL Server tables.
- It is a NoSQL datastore for storing large amounts of structured data.
- It’s not a RDB. No joint between tables. They are standalone.
- You can create, query, and delete entities. Mandatory properties should be defined for each action.
- Tables can have metadata as well.
- It’s designed for high transactional workloads.
