Create storage account

This section details the purpose of storage accounts and the commands related to creating them.

A storage account is required to store your Vyatta NOS VM's disk image. If you are creating multiple routers to enable high availability, you should also create multiple storage accounts, to avoid having the storage account be a single point of failure.

The storage account must be a Storage account, rather than a BlobStorage account. The name of the storage account must be globally unique within Azure, as it is used as part of the storage account URL. Storage accounts can be created by using the azure storage account create <name> command as follows:

$ azure storage account create --sku-name LRS --kind Storage --location westus --resource-group vRouter vrouterdeploy
