Description

Azure Resource Manager Virtual Machines

Virtual Machines are a very foundational and fundamental resource in Cloud Computing. Deploying virtual machines gives you more flexibility and control over your cloud infrastructure and services, however, it also means you have more responsibility to maintain and configure these resources. This course gives you an overview of why use virtual machines as well as how to create, configure, and monitor VMs in Azure Resource Manager.

Transcript

To wrap up this lesson, I’d like to briefly discuss a few Performance guidelines with regards to VM Scale sets.

Managed Disks, which again means Azure manages your VM disks without you having to manually manage storage accounts, increases your performance since there is a limitation on how many storage disks you may have per storage account for unmanaged disks.
Azure offers a Premium Storage option which has faster provisioning times and better I/O performance
Each VM supports a number of CPU cores and the total number of cores of all VMs within a particular region is limited, however you may increase your VM core quota limit for a region by simply contacting Microsoft Customer Support
