Before launching the Ark console, you should create an Azure storage account in which the Ark console will store console backups. You should not modify the storage account after the console is launched.To add an Azure storage account, navigate to the Azure All resources page, and click the Add button. In the MARKETPLACE edit box enter Storage account, and hit return. Highlight the Storage account – blob, file, table, queue entry.Click the Create button located on the bottom of the Storage account-blob, file, table, queue panel to open the Create storage account panel. Use fields on the Create storage account panel to define the storage account (see Figure 3.45).When you've defined your storage account, click Create; the Azure dashboard will keep you informed as the storage account is deployed, and send you a notification when the account creation is finished.
