One of the most basic task (and most common) in Azure is creating virtual machine. Like most resources, you can create a VM in three ways:
- Azure Portal
- Azure PowerShell
- Azure CLI
Alternatively, you can deploy VM using GitHub or JSON template.
Using Azure Portal, process is pretty simple. You need to select image from Marketplace, and populate fields related VM name, disk, size, network, username / password (SSH key) …
Select image from Marketplace
Enter VM name, disk type, username / password, select subscription
Create new Resource Group and use existing, select location where VM will be placed
Select VM size, depend on your needs
If you need anything of optional features, you can select or create on this step
Also, network setting will be selected or created on this step
That is all!
