Let's go ahead and create a new virtual machine.…We do that by opening the Azure portal.…If I click on virtual machines you'll see that I currently have no machines set up.…I'm going to hit New at the bottom…and under Compute I'm going to select Virtual Machine.…I have the ability to both create my own or do one from the gallery.…Let's create our own first.…We're going to call this, up and running.…You'll notice it immediately checks for a DNS entry.…So, our machine will be reachable at upandrunning.cloudapp.net.…
I have the ability to choose different images of LS's here that you'll see.…So, we're going to use the default Windows Server 2012 Data Center As well…as different sizes, so you'll see as…I previously described an extra small instance…at 768 MB, all the way up to a large eight core 56 GB memory instance.…I'm going to stick with the small instance, going to enter a…username and a password And then I'm going to pick a location.…So we're going to do west US, and say create virtual machine.…
And that's it.…
