About Lab


Azure Virtual Machines (VM) is one of several types of on-demand, scalable computing resources that Azure offers. Typically, you choose a VM when you need more control over the computing environment than the other choices offer. 

What Will You Learn?

In this lab you will:

  • Learn about how to search a template based on your requirement
  • Learn to create a virtual machine form the template
  • Learn to check metrics and properties of a virtual machine


As this lab is foundational, it requires user to have basic knowledge of Azure PaaS services (Theoretical knowledge would be sufficient).

If you have a personal or corporate Azure Cloud account or project, it is recommended to run your cloud labs in an incognito window in order to avoid confusion of accounts.
