Exploring Windows Azure Storage – Mohammed Faizal

The second session was done by me. I start to discuss about Windows Azure Storage in overview first, subsequently explore more on Windows Azure Table Storage in deep. I use Portfolio and stock and How effectively you can use partition key and row key access or retrieve data from storage.

  • Unique partition key is the fastest access method.
  • Partition key and row key is very fast
  • Partition key and no row key is slower (the Table service needs to read all properties for each entity in the partition).
  • No partition key and no row key is very slow
