Windows Virtual Machine Creation In Microsoft Azure


In this article, we will see how we can create a Virtual Machine on Microsoft Azure Cloud using Azure Portal.

The purpose of creating Virtual machines is to access any services on Microsoft Azure Cloud.


We need to have an Azure subscription.
If you don't have an Azure subscription, you can get a trial account for one month.

OK let’s start.

Step 1

Accessing Microsoft Azure Portal.

Just type in the Url and then Enter.

This will open up the Windows Portal.


Step 2

After successful login, the first thing we will notice is the Azure Dash Board.

Dashboard is a online platform where Azure cloud services users/subscribers can view and monitor status of current requests/work.

And, this menu has a lot of options to create and manage various Azure Services on the Cloud.

But, now we need to create a Windows Server Virtual Services. So, click the Virtual machine button on the menu.


Step 3

Click the Add button.

Now we will open the Windows Server Virtual Machine gallery. Here, we can see lot of options available to create Virtual Machines.

Click on Windows Server.

Step 8

In the last step, Microsoft Azure will validate all the settings.

Once the validation is successful, you can press Create.
