Hi, I am able to create , delete storage account using certificate authentication. currently I am using my local machine to do the same. I want to create windows service for the same and want to host it into same azure subscription where i want to create storage accounts. Do i need create certification authentication on azure??? Please guide.

I want to use continues running service which can do database operation and send email to the appropriate person so he can use this storage account to upload his files.

I want to create storage account, Send email, do data base operations using same service.

To access Storage from local machine I have created and installed one certificate on local machine and uploaded on azure.
