Azure CBS Deployment Checklist

Deployment may fail if all the requirements are not met. Before deploying Cloud Block Store, go through the following checklist:

  1. Does your tenant have an Azure Active Directory Premium 2 license? See Azure Active Directory Premium 2 License section for details.
  2. Ensure you have the proper IAM roles for your user account. See the Azure IAM Roles section for details.
  3. Ensure there is internet access from the subnet used for the System interface. See the Internet Access section for details.
  4. Is there a Service Endpoint for CosmoDB and KeyVault for the subnet used by the System interface. See Service Endpoint section for details.
  5. Ensure that your max vCPU limits can accommodate Cloud Block Store instances. See Azure VM instance vCPU limits section for details.
  6. Have you retrieved your Pure-As-A-Service license from Pure1? Steps to retrieve license are here. (Note: make sure you are logged into to view this page).
    1. Note: - If you have not purchased a license, there are two options to obtain a license key:
      1. Working with Pure Storage sales teams and Pure Storage partners to obtain a Pure as-a-Service subscription.
      2. Going directly to the Azure Marketplace to sign up for a subscription service.
    2. Starting with 6.1.10 and 6.2.0, there is an option to use a special license key for a timed trial of CBS without obtaining a subscription/license through Pure or the Azure Marketplace.  For a full description and limitations, see here.
  7. Have you added your Azure subscription ID to Pure1? This is security feature to ensure only user approved Azure subscriptions are allowed to deploy Cloud Block Store. Instructions to register and whitelist Azure subscriptions are provide here. (Note: make sure you are logged into to view this page) 
  8. If the above requirements have been met, proceed and deploy Cloud Block Store.
