Microsoft Azure Storage is a highly distributed, massively scalable, and ubiquitously accessible cloud storage system designed to scale out and serve the entire world. Azure storage already runs at Exascale (storing Exabytes of data) and we will be scaling our designs over the next decade to support Zettascale (storing Zettabytes of data).


Our development path includes designing and implementing new hardware based accelerators – utilizing the latest technologies including FPGAs, RDMA, NVMe devices, Flash, NVDIMM and Storage Class Memory.  If you have the interest and the passion to work on new hardware + software solutions to enable performance and scalability at the highest levels, then Azure Storage may have a place for you.
