In this article, we will explain the steps to create the Azure storage account.
Step 1: Login into Azure Portal
Log in to the Azure portal using the portal link.
Step 2: Create Storage Account
In portal search for the storage account.
Click on “Storage Account” and then click on “Create”
Select the subscription in which to create the new storage account and other required information. Then click on Next: Advanced >
Subscription: I am using the Pay-as-you-go service. You can use a free trial as a Subscription tier
Resource Group: Choose a new or existing resource group
Storage Account Name: You can choose the name whatever you want, but write all the letters in lower cases, and the name must be unique.
Region: Select the location for your storage account
Performance: Performace should be Standard but Microsoft recommends Premium.
Redundancy: Azure Storage always stores multiple copies of your data. So please select the redundancy as per your requirement.
Configure security settings that impact your storage account. I am using the default value but you can change it according to your requirement. Then click on Next: Networking >
Here you can set up accessibility for storage accounts, like virtual networks or any private endpoint. I am leaving it as the default Network access value “Enable Public access from all networks” and Routing preference is “Microsoft network routing” and then click on Next: Data protection >
Now, you can protect your data from accidental or erroneous deletion or modification and then click on Next: Encryption >
Select your encryption type and click on Next: Tags >
Tags are names or value pairs that enable you to categorize resources. When you fill in all the details click on the “Review + Create” button.
It will validate the above details inside and will show a message “Validation passed”.
Now click on the “Create” button to create the storage account. Once a resource has been created it will show you “Your deployment is complete”. Now click on “Go to resource”
You have successfully created the storage account.
Step 3: Create Data Storage
Now we will create the container and will upload the files. Click on Containers in the data storage section.
Click on + Container to create the container. Here I am creating a “data” container for this article.
Step 4: Upload the Files
Once the container has been created and we are ready to upload the files.
Click on Upload to upload the files.
We have successfully uploaded the file.
