This talk will centre around how Microsoft Azure and F# fit together as an excellent value proposition for storage, retrieval and analysis of large quantities of data.
Microsoft Azure offers a number of flexible options to act as a low-cost, high-performance and reliable data-store, whilst one of F#’s biggest strengths is its ability to quickly and easily parse and analyse data.
In this talk, you will see:-

• What the different storage options offered by Microsoft Azure are
Why you would use Azure storage over other databases
