Azure Virtual Machine sounds technical but it is not once you start to learn more about them. It is another benefit of these VMs, their ease of use and also ease of setting them up. Azure VMs are extremely flexible to customize for any size business.
Microsoft Office 365 allows you to choose a platform like Linux or Windows Server, or use a “Quick Create” feature that offers pre-built templates with different configurations to choose from.
This makes things easier as you only have to look for a template that fits your needs and use it.
All you need is to provide very basic information like name, location, platform image, and password.
Here are the three main benefits of using Azure VMs in your business:
Scalability: With an expansion in your business or more advanced requirements, you don’t have to buy new or more powerful machines. You can simply customize the Azure VMs into a more advanced machine. Azure VMs allows scalability on-demand, without any need for businesses to add physical resources like hardware and more space. For example, you can virtually customize your machine to add an additional RAM for better processing time, instead of adding more storage physically.
Backup and Quick Recovery: Cloud computing is known for its quick recovery and backup solution that was not possible with physical machines. You don’t have to worry anymore about the failure of your hardware. All your data and apps are stored in cloud computing and in case hardware fails, it is shifted swiftly to other hardware areas without any downtime.
Cloning: To physically clone a machine is an expensive and time-consuming task, but cloning an Azure VM takes seconds and just a few clicks. As you can save your customized VM as a template, you can simply use the same template to clone it again and again.
