In the storage emulator, monitor your application while it is running and start and stop it as necessary. You can see your
trace messages in the compute emulator and verify the application's basic functionality.
Display the storage emulator UI, in a similar way to displaying the storage emulator UI. In the storage UI, you can monitor
Microsoft Azure storage, and you can display the cloud drive in Windows explorer.
