Get To Hands On Azure For Free 
 
Go on to https://azure.microsoft.com/en-in/free/, and use your free Azure subscription. All you need is a credit card to verify the account and then, you go on with your journey with the best cloud providing solution platform.

Things you get with a free account include the following. You get all of this and you will not be charged until you choose to upgrade:

  • 12 months of popular free services + ₹13,300 credit to explore services for 30 days + Always free 25+ services.
  • Host a Database, or launch a Virtual Machine, either Linux or Windows. Get file storage or  Blob Storage for free with some limited amount of resources free for a year and some of the tools, functions, and services are free for a lifetime. (LIMITED).

If you need a bit more resources, I suggest you start the pay-as-you-go subscription because that is the minimal cost at which you are getting the resources at the best platform.

But still, I know there are people who still want to hunt for free services. I know some things that I guess you should know too.
