This Blog shows you how easy it is to create a Windows virtual machine (VM) use Microsoft Azure . Microsoft Azure provides a scalable computing platform that allows you to only pay for what you use, when you want it without having to invest in on-premises hardware. Azure is ready when you are to scale your solutions up and out to whatever scale you require to service the needs of your clients.
We use a Windows Server 2016 Datacenter image as an example, but that’s just one of the many images Azure offers. Your image choices depend on your subscription.
Sign in to the Azure portal. and then On the hub menu, click New > Compute > Windows Server 2016 Datacenter.
On the Windows Server 2016 Datacenter blade, in Select a deployment model, verify that Resource Manager is selected. Click Create.
- On the Basics blade, enter a Name for the virtual machine. The name must be 1-15 characters long and it cannot contain special characters.
- Enter a User name, and a strong Password that will be used to create a local account on the VM. The local account is used to sign in to and manage the VM.
- Select an existing Resource group or type the name for a new one. Type an Azure datacenter Location such as West US.
Choose a VM size, and then click Select to continue.
On the Settings blade, you can change the storage and network options. you can try Azure Premium Storage by selecting Premium (SSD) in Disk type. When you’re done making changes, click OK.
Click Summary to review your choices. When you see the Validation passed message, click OK.
After success create VM , click Virtual Machines and then click Connect. This creates and downloads a Remote Desktop Protocol file (.rdp file) that is like a shortcut to connect to your machine. You might want to save the file to your desktop for easy access. Open this file to connect to your VM.
You get a warning that the .rdp is from an unknown publisher. This is normal. In the Remote Desktop window, click Connect to continue.
The username is entered as vmname\username, then click OK.
You get a warning that the certificate cannot be verified. This is normal. Click Yes to verify the identity of the virtual machine and finish logging on.
Thanks you 🙂
