Microsoft Azure : Running Windows Virtual Machine

How easy it is to create an Azure VM in just a few minutes. We'll use Windows Server 2012 r2 Datacentre image but that's just one of many images Azure offers.

We can also create VM’s using our own images, with Resource Manager Templates or with automation tools.

We will use the Resource Manager Deployment model to create VM. This is recommended instead of the classic deployment model, which is based on Service Management APIs.



We need Azure subscription.


Steps to create a VM


Select Image

1)    Log in to




2)    On Hub menu, click New >> Compute >> Windows Server 2012 R2 Datacentre

3)    On Windows Server 2012 R2 Datacentre page, under Select a deployment model, select Resource Manager. Click Create.




Create VM

1)    On Create virtual machine blade, click Basics. Enter Name, administrative User name, and Password. Add new Resource group. Provide Azure datacentre Location.




NOTE: We’ll need user name and password to log on the VM.


2)    Click Size and select VM size. Each size specifies the number of compute cores, memory, and other features. Azure recommends certain sizes automatically depending on the image we choose.




3)    Click Settings to add storage and networking settings.








4)    Click Summary to review configuration choices. When we're done reviewing or updating the settings, click Create.




5)    While Azure creates VM, we can track progress in Notifications, in Hub menu. After Azure creates VM, we'll see it on Startboard.




Connect the VM

Now, we want to log on to it so we can manage its settings and applications that we'll run.

1)    On virtual machine blade, click Connect.




2)    Click Connect.




3)    Type user name and password we set when we created VM, and click OK.




4)    Click yes to verify the identity of the VM.




We can now work with VM just as we would with any other server.
