This article will help you understand how you can set up or create a virtual machine in Azure. Basically an Azure virtual machine is a computer which you can configure according to your needs. It allows load balance traffic, so if you host your website or anything in the virtual machines, it will be fast enough. We can set up the virtual machines from your azure portal. It will be great if you have any existing MSDN subscription with you before you go with this. Now we will discuss more about how we can configure a virtual machine in Azure. I hope you will like this.

Background

There are so many reasons why you should go with a virtual machine. I will share with you what exactly my need was. I was using a cleardb for my wordpress website. I was some having some limitation that 20 MB as the database size. For me that was not sufficient, and after my db crosses the limit, I was not able to login to my wordpress dashboard. I was getting some database errors when I try to login to admin.
