Create A Windows Virtual Machine With Azure Portal

Let us understand what a virtual machine is. A virtual machine is a machine which operates. Logically, it’s an OS, which runs with a logical CPU being formed with the help of virtual computing platforms; i.e., Hypervisor by Microsoft. Azure deals with virtual machines. Azure virtual machines are highly scalable, secured, strong infrastructure based machines and all Azure facilities are on demand by the consumer/customer at Azure. Today’s main agenda is to learn about how to make up a machine (virtual) at the Azure portal. On the whole, there are three deployment models to configure an Azure virtual machine. One of those methods is using Azure portal. Note: If you don’t have an Azure subscription, make a trial Azure subscription via this Web link Once it is done, l  go in to the Azure portal at
