SMB Server on Cloud
Azure Virtual Machines are the main compute power resource that represents the Microsoft Azure Infrastructure as a Service model. Azure Virtual machine is one of several types of on-demand, scalable computing resources that Azure offers. Typically, you choose a VM when you need more control over the computing environment than the other choices offer.
An Azure VM gives you the flexibility of virtualization without having to buy and maintain the physical hardware that runs it. However, you still need to maintain the VM by performing tasks, such as configuring, patching, and installing the software that runs on it.
