Creating a storage on Azure

SA_logo

Today I’m going to show you how to create a storage in the Microsoft Azure portal. So straight to the point, let’s get start: First log on your Azure Portal, next go to the “Search Bar” and type “Storage Accounts“, after that select Storage Accounts and finally click “Create“.

Now let’s add the necessary information for each Storage, remembering which organization will have Storages according to your needs. I will detail each configuration (Required ones):

Basics tab

  • Subscription – Select the subscription for the new storage account.
  • Resource group – Create a new resource group for this storage account, or select an existing one. For more information, see Resource groups.
  • Storage account name – Choose a unique name for your storage account. Storage account names must be between 3 and 24 characters in length and may contain numbers and lowercase letters only.
  • Region – Select the appropriate region for your storage account. Not all regions are supported for all types of storage accounts or redundancy configurations.
  • Performance – Select Standard performance for general-purpose v2 storage accounts (default). This type of account is recommended by Microsoft for most scenarios. Select Premium for scenarios requiring low latency. After selecting Premium, select the type of premium storage account to create. The following types of premium storage accounts are available:
  • Redundancy – Select your desired redundancy configuration. Not all redundancy options are available for all types of storage accounts in all regions. If you select a geo-redundant configuration (GRS or GZRS), your data is replicated to a data center in a different region. For read access to data in the secondary region, select Make read access to data available in the event of regional unavailability.
  • Advanced tab

    Networking tab
    • Connectivity method – By default, incoming network traffic is routed to the public endpoint for your storage account. You can specify that traffic must be routed to the public endpoint through an Azure virtual network. You can also configure private endpoints for your storage account. For more information, see Use private endpoints for Azure Storage.
    • Routing preference – The network routing preference specifies how network traffic is routed to the public endpoint of your storage account from clients over the internet. By default, a new storage account uses Microsoft network routing. You can also choose to route network traffic through the POP closest to the storage account, which may lower networking costs. For more information, see Network routing preference for Azure Storage.

    Then click Create.
