Azure Virtual Machines

Improve operational efficiency, scale and optimise your infrastructure and reduce costs.

Find the right Azure VM for your needs

Azure Virtual Machines (VM) is one of several types of on-demand, scalable computing resources that Azure, Microsoft’s Cloud Platform offers. With an Azure Virtual Machine dedicated amounts of CPU, memory and storage are “borrowed” from a physical host computer and/or a remote server—such as a server in a cloud provider’s datacentre. It’s like your own personal computer but rather than purchasing it you are renting it out in the cloud.  An Azure Virtual Machine (Azure VM)  gives you the flexibility of virtualisation without having to buy and maintain the physical hardware that runs it.

What Azure VM offers:

  • Independent virtual computers with individual operating systems and applications
  • Virtual Machine Manager (VMM) allows you to configure and manage your network of VMs
  • Run different operating systems on different machines at the same time
  • Move a VM on a hypervisor to another hypervisor on a completely different machine almost instantaneously

Why choose Azure Virtual Machines

Cost Savings

Reduce your physical infrastructure and associated costs by running multiple virtual environments

Agility and Speed

Developing a VM is easy and quick compared to provisioning a new environment for developers and makes testing a lot easier

Less Downtime

The portability of VMs using a hypervisor makes them a great solution for backup, if a host goes down they can quickly be moved to a different machine.

Scalability

With VMs you can easily scale your resources by simply adding more physical or virtual servers and distribute the workload across multiple VMs.
