Azure Virtual Machines lets you deploy a wide range of computing solutions in an agile way. Deploy a virtual machine nearly instantly, and pay by the minute. With support for Microsoft Windows, Linux, Microsoft SQL Server, Oracle, IBM, SAP, and Azure BizTalk Services, you can deploy any workload and any language on nearly any operating system.
Deploy with a click using Resource Manager templates
Include virtual machines, virtual networks, and storage accounts in Azure Resource Manager templates. Resource Manager is at the heart of the Azure portal, and you use the power of Resource Manager directly with these core resources. Resource Manager templates enable single -click deployment of complex applications into a resource group that contains all of the elements of an application. You then manage those elements as a single unit through advanced role -based authentication and control (RBAC) and per-resource tagging.
