Azure gives you the freedom to build, manage, and deploy applications on a massive global network using your favorite tools and frameworks.StorageAzure provides four main types of storage services. These services are:StorageAzure provides four main types of storage services. These services are:TABLE 3Service nameService functionAzure Blob storageStorage service for very large objects, such as video files or bitmapsAzure File storageFile shares that you can access and manage like a file serverAzure Queue storageA data store for queuing and reliably delivering messages between applicationsAzure Table storageA NoSQL store that hosts unstructured data independent of any schemaLet's walk through a checklist of things to think about.Start with the networkName the VMDecide the location for the VMDetermine the size of the VMUnderstanding the pricing modelStorage for the VMSelect an operating systemVirtual networks (VNets) are used in Azure to provide private connectivity between Azure Virtual Machines and other Azure services.When you set up a virtual network, you specify the available address spaces, subnets, and security. If the VNet will be connected to other VNets, you must select address ranges that are not overlapping. This is the range of private addresses that the VMs and services in your networkcan useThere are two separate costs the subscription will be charged for every VM: compute and storage.Compute costs- Compute expenses are priced on a per-hour basis but billed on a per-minute basis.Storage costs- You are charged separately for the storage the VM uses.

You do this to break up your network into more manageable sections. For example, you might assign 10.1.0.0 to VMs, 10.2.0.0 to back-end services, and 10.3.0.0 to SQL Server VMs.Availability is the percentage of time a service is available for use.To ensure your services aren't interrupted and avoid a single point of failure, it's recommended todeploy at least two instances of each VM. This feature is called anavailability set.Anavailability setis a logical feature used to ensure that a group of related VMs are deployed so that they aren't all subject to a single point of failure and not all upgraded at the same time during a host operating system upgrade in the datacenter. VMs placed in an availability set should perform an identical set of functionalities and have the same software installed.
