What is the different between a Storage Account and a Bucket Name?


A Storage Account is what owns the containers where your data resides or will reside. The name of the Storage Account can be found by logging in to your Azure portal and navigating to Storage Accounts. The Storage Account name is entered when first setting up your Endpoint in MigrationWiz. 

A Bucket Name is the name of the logical container found within the Storage Account. The Bucket Name can be found by clicking Containers under the heading BLOB SERVICE when viewing the details of your Storage Account. You must enter this in the project's Advanced Options, either under Source or Destination, depending on the migration scenario.
