What is Azure Virtual Machines?

Azure Virtual Machines are just like regular servers but hosted as software in Microsoft’s Azure cloud. You can create, configure, manage, and delete them using Azure’s web-based portal, and use them to run regular applications. They offer new levels of flexibility for IT departments while saving on hardware investments.

Any company with volatile computing workloads that make capacity planning difficult will find virtual machines useful and cost-efficient. They provide computing resources when you need them, and save you money when you don’t.
