Microsoft is putting a lot of effort into simplifying access, organization, and management for its Azure related services, bringing many of the services to the Preview Portal recently.

Today, Microsoft has made Azure Storages available in the consolidated portal, proving the following functions:

  • New storage account creation
  • Quickly view the list of created storage containers, tables, and queues.
  • Management of containers (with management of tables and queues coming soon).
  • Access to storage keys
  • Regeneration of storage keys
  • Storage metrics monitoring, include account performance and usage
