In my previous post in this series, I discussed the different ways of accessing data in Azure Storage Services generally. Today I am going to look at storage accounts in detail.
Why do I need a storage account?
To get started with Azure Storage Services, you need two things:
- Azure subscription
- Storage account
An Azure Subscription gives you access to a variety of Azure services. It’s an entry ticket to the game. Once you have an Azure subscription, the next thing you need to do is to create a storage account; this is a secured account that allows you to access different data abstraction tools, such as the Blob, Queue, Table and File services.
