Explore your options to select the right VMs for your workloads. On this episode of Azure Essentials, Matt McSpirit shares core compute and disk storage options for any workload you want to run in Azure.
If you're new to Azure, shifting your apps or workloads onto a virtual machine or multiple VMs in Azure can be achieved without rearchitecting them or writing new code. You can even deploy your workloads to Azure Dedicated Hosts that provide single tenant physical servers dedicated to your organization. Azure literally becomes the equivalent of running your physical data center in the cloud.
The primary benefit of running your apps and workloads in Azure is choice. Azure provides a comprehensive range of hundreds of VMs to deliver the scale and performance needed across your preferred Linux distros and Windows Server based applications.
Select the right VMs for your workloads: From entry-level to optimized, depending on the workload
Deployment: Download images from the Azure Marketplace, or deploy your own
Scale: Create thousands of virtual machines using Azure Virtual Machines Scale Sets.
Pay for what you consume: Bring existing and future Windows and SQL server licenses, Red Hat enterprise Linux, and SUSE licenses into Azure using the Azure Hybrid Benefit.
