Azure Blob Storage account creation

 Creating an Azure Blob Storage account is relatively straightforward. Here are the steps to create an Azure Blob Storage account:


  1. An Azure subscription: You need an active Azure subscription to create and use Azure Blob Storage.

Steps to Create an Azure Blob Storage Account:

  1. Sign in to Azure Portal: Open a web browser and navigate to Sign in with your Azure account.
  2. Create a New Storage Account:
    • Click on the "+ Create a resource" button on the Azure portal dashboard.
    • In the search box, type "Storage account" and press Enter.
    • Click on "Storage account - blob, file, table, queue."
  3. Configure the Storage Account Settings: Fill in the required information for your Blob Storage account:
    • Basics:
      • Subscription: Choose your Azure subscription.
      • Resource group: Create a new one or use an existing resource group.
      • Storage account name: Enter a unique name for your storage account (lowercase letters, numbers, and hyphens only).
      • Region: Choose the geographic region where you want to create the storage account.
      • Performance: Select either Standard or Premium, based on your needs.
      • Replication: Choose the replication option that suits your data redundancy and availability requirements (e.g., Locally redundant storage (LRS), Geo-redundant storage (GRS), etc.).
    • Advanced:
      • Data Lake Storage Gen2: Leave this option as "Disabled" unless you specifically need Data Lake Storage features.
    • Networking and Data protection: Configure the networking and data protection options based on your requirements. The default settings are suitable for many scenarios.
  4. Tags (Optional): Add tags to your resource for better organization and management if desired.
  5. Review + Create: Review the settings you've configured, and then click the "Review + Create" button.
  6. Review and Validation: Azure will perform a validation check to ensure that the settings are valid. If everything looks good, click the "Create" button.
  7. Deployment: Azure will now deploy your Blob Storage account. This process may take a few moments. You can monitor the deployment progress on the Azure portal.
  8. Deployment Complete: Once the deployment is complete, you will receive a notification. You can then go to your newly created storage account.

That's it! You've successfully created an Azure Blob Storage account. You can start using this storage account to store, manage, and access your blobs, whether for web content hosting, data backup, or any other use case. Remember to secure your access keys and configure access control settings for your storage account to protect your data.
