Microsoft Azure IaaS – Learning Resources

Microsoft Azure offers IaaS (Infrastructure as a Service) at a competitive price. In simpler terms Infrastructure as a Service means you rent a server hardware and you pay based on agreed terms. These servers are called Azure Virtual Machines and they come in varying sizes. Given Azure Virtual Machines are bare-bone machines, you can deploy a Windows Server, Linux, or third-party software images to Azure. You can select OS images from a gallery or bring your own customized images. Microsoft charge for Virtual Machines by the minute.  Virtual Machine Pricing Details can be obtained from Microsoft’s office size at the URL below:

All virtual machines in Azure are configured with at least two disks when you create the virtual machine – one is an operating system disk and the other is a temporary local disk, sometimes called a resource disk. Temporary Local disk storage is provided with Virtual Machines and is not charged separately. The operating system disk is charged at the regular rate for Disks.
