It is a data storage service for storing structured NOSQL data in the cloud. As mentioned that Azure table storage is useful for storing NOSQL data, hencefoth we can figue out that it can store a table which does not have any foreign keys or any other kind of relation. The Azure tables are highly scalable and ideal for handling large amount of data. We can store, query for large amount of data. The relational database can be stored using SQL Data Services, which is a separate service altogether. The service has three main parts


Let's understand the same with a simple example. Let's say Employee is an entity whose properties can be EmployeeID, EmployeeName, Age, Gender, Address, Blood Group etc.

And the Azure table will be a collction of Employee entity.
