Overview

Virtual Machines introduce the IaaS element to Microsoft Azure. They allow the operation of virtual machines on Microsoft Azure that were created by the user or provided by Microsoft. These are charged by the minute. Provisioning a virtual machine requires only the specification of a VHD (standard VHDs are used here) for the booting process, the VM size, and a few configuration parameters (e.g., administrator account, DNS name) depending on the selected VHD.

Documentation for Virtual Machines is split into several sections:
