Deploying An Azure Virtual Machine (VM)


The Azure virtual machine is one of the wide range of services that azure offers to create your virtual instance.

Each virtual machine provides its virtual hardware including CPUs, Memory, Hard Drives, Network interface, and other devices.

A Virtual Machine offers the flexibility of virtualization without buying and maintaining the physical hardware that runs it.

In this article, I have done the complete VM creation in azure.
