Notes on Azure

Some notes on Microsoft Azure

3 type of services provided

  1. App Service – ┬áScalable Web Apps, Mobile Apps, API Apps, and Logic Apps for any device
  2. Cloud Service – Highly available, scalable n-tier cloud apps with more control of the OS
  3. Virtual Machines – Customized Windows and Linux VMs with complete control of the OS

Important steps you should know in creating an application

  1. Create a “resource group”. All your services will be grouped under this resource group
  2. Create an “app service plan” – package of data center location, cpu and memory size
  3. Create an “web app service” – based on plan and under resource group created in step 1 and 2
