Create a Virtual Machine Running Linux

Tags: azure, linux, ssh

This is a really high-level overview of creating a Linux VM in Microsoft Azure.

  • Use the new portal.
  • Use the Resource Manager Stack (instead of the legacy Service Management Compute Stack.)
  • Use a local public key when creating the VM.
    • gc ~\.ssh\id_rsa.pub | clip
  • Remove in using SSH to the Public IP Address.

Hooray. You’re done.
