Launch Windows Server and Linux virtual machines in minutes
Deploy what you want, nearly instantly
Azure Virtual Machines lets you deploy a wide range of computing solutions in an agile way. Deploy a virtual machine nearly instantly, and pay by the minute. With support for Microsoft Windows, Linux, Microsoft SQL Server, Oracle, IBM, SAP, and Azure BizTalk Services, you can deploy any workload and any language on nearly any operating system.
Deploy with a click using Resource Manager templates
Include virtual machines, virtual networks, and storage accounts in Azure Resource Manager templates. Resource Manager is at the heart of the Azure portal, and you use the power of Resource Manager directly with these core resources. Resource Manager templates enable single -click deployment of complex applications into a resource group that contains all of the elements of an application. You then manage those elements as a single unit through advanced role -based authentication and control (RBAC) and per-resource tagging.
Run Microsoft enterprise applications with world-class support
It’s easy to deploy Microsoft enterprise applications on virtual machines. From Microsoft SharePoint to Dynamics to System Center, you get great stability, performance, and guidance when running on Azure. Our world-class support team has your back, and our flexible technical support plans cover everything from Microsoft applications to cloud infrastructure.
Experience open source, with options
You can deploy a full range of open-source and community-driven software solutions on Azure. Choose from a full range of Linux distributions like Red Hat, Ubuntu and SUSE and community-driven solutions like Chef, Puppet, and Docker, along with other products like Oracle Database and Oracle WebLogic Server. Azure is open with lots of options.
Easily provision SQL Server on virtual machines
Using images built by the SQL Server team, it’s easy to provision a SQL Server virtual machine in minutes. Create virtual machines using free MSDN licenses to quickly build dev-test environments, or deploy complex production applications spanning multiple Azure regions by using SQL Server AlwaysOn.
Build security-enhanced, compliant solutions
Build and deploy your applications with the assurance that your data is protected and safe in our highly secure datacenters. Use our encryption solutions like Azure Disk Encryption to protect your application data. Secure your network using Azure Virtual Networks and Security Groups. Take advantage of our certification for key compliance programs to create solutions meeting regulatory and compliance requirements.
Achieve fast I/O performance with low latencies
GS-series virtual machines combine the power of G-series virtual machines with the disk performance of Azure Premium Storage. Attach up to 64 TB of storage per virtual machine, achieving up to 80,000 I/O operations per second on virtual machines with extremely low latencies.
