Creating Service Endpoints Between Virtual Machines and Blob Storage
In this lab, we configure a service endpoint that allows direct and non-public communications between virtual machines running in Azure and blobs within a storage account. The lab starts with a pre-created Windows Server VM / associated virtual network, and also a pre-created storage account. We then configure a service endpoint from the VM's virtual network to the storage account. The service endpoint is then established by going to the virtual network and opening the 'Service endpoints' page, where we then establish the connectivity.
