Hello Everyone

Welcome to CloudAffaire and this is Debjeet.

In this blog post, we will discuss how to create an Azure Virtual Machine using Azure CLI.

What Is Azure CLI:

Azure Command Line Interface or Azure CLI is a collection of commands that can be used to interact with Azure service. Like in AWS we use AWS CLI or in GCP we use gcloud, in Azure you can use Azure CLI to create and manage your Azure resources.

What is Azure Virtual Machine:

Azure Virtual Machine or Azure VM is the compute service offered by Azure to host your virtual servers in Azure cloud. Azure Virtual Machine is basically a virtual server running on Azure datacenter. Like in AWS you use EC2 instance or in GCP you use Google Compute Engine Instance, in Azure, you will use Azure VM instance if you need to create and manage your own server on Azure cloud.

Prerequisites:

  • One system with Azure CLI installed and configured.
