         new CloudTableClient(
             storageAccount.TableEndpoint.ToString(),
             storageAccount.Credentials);

    tableClient.BeginDoesTableExist(
      "Products", CheckTableExistenceAsyncCallback, tableClient);
}

public static void CheckTableExistenceAsyncCallback(IAsyncResult result)
{
    CloudTableClient tableClient = (CloudTableClient)result.AsyncState;

    if (tableClient.EndDoesTableExist(result))
    {
        Console.WriteLine("Table exists.");
