Deploy and Configure an Azure Virtual Machine
Azure Virtual Machines (VM) is one of several types of on-demand, scalable computing resources that Azure offers. Typically, you choose a VM when you need more control over the computing environment than the other choices offer.
An Azure VM gives you the flexibility of virtualization without having to buy and maintain the physical hardware that runs it. However, you still need to maintain the VM by performing tasks, such as configuring, patching, and installing the software that runs on it.
In this interactive, hands-on Azure simulation, you will be guided through the process of provisioning a new Windows virtual machine via the Azure Portal. The new VM, called Server01, will be deployed into an existing resource group, called MyResourceGroup. You will let Azure auto-create a virtual network for the new virtual machine. During the creation of the VM, you will also create and attach a data disk to the virtual machine.
