Have you ever imagined the world with an infinite amount of storage available and accessible to everyone? A place where everyone in the world can easily access their books/music/photos/video/any data from anywhere at any time via any means (e.g. mobile phones, tablets, PCs, smart devices, etc). Did you ever desire a universally accessible storage system to record all the knowledge known to mankind, to keep all the books/music/videos ever created, or to store all the data collected from all the scientists in the world for them to collaborate upon? Do you want to be part of a team that strives to bring these to reality?

We continue to have tremendous hockey stick growth, we have many Exabyte’s of data stored, and are designing and building systems for Zettabyte scale to support demand growth for the coming years.

Responsibilities

We are working on Storage control plane, resource management, COGS and Scale related projects in Xstore.

Regional Resource Management team in xstore is one Integrated and comprehensive resource management responsible for smarter allocation of storage accounts and load balancing storage tenants on various resource dimensions like CPU, memory, IOPS, capacity, etc by migrating storage accounts, virtualizing/scaling out storage accounts in the background allowing the accounts to operate at scale with no limits. One the core responsibilities is to optimize COGS for Azure storage, while allowing customers to scale out with no limits on ingress/egress/IOPS/capacity.
