2. Create your first storage container

During the Beta period of PCS, each Cloud account will be created with one container by default.

To add extra containers, you need to connect to the Cloud RESTful API with your Cloud account.
Then you can create a new PCS container.

Once created, the function will return you a Swift point of connection.

3. Use directly Swift functions to perform your actions on the container

With the given point of connection, you can use all of the functions provided by the Swift API.
