Before deploying Cloud Block Store, go through the following checklist:

    Ensure you have the proper IAM roles for your user account. See the Azure IAM Roles section for details.
  • Outbound Internet Access
    Ensure there is internet access from the subnet used for the System interface. See the Internet Access section for details.
  • Service Endpoints
    Is there a Service Endpoint for CosmoDB and KeyVault for the subnet used by the System interface. See Service Endpoint section for details.
  • vCPU Quota
    Ensure that your max vCPU limits can accommodate Cloud Block Store instances. See Azure VM instance vCPU limits section for details.

    1. Working with Pure Storage sales teams and Pure Storage partners to obtain a Evergreen//One subscription.
    2. Going directly to the Azure Marketplace to sign up for a subscription service.
    3. From version 6.1.10 and later, 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.
  • Enabled Subscription ID [2]
    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[1].
