Mastering Cloud Development using Microsoft Azure

By: Roberto Freato, Marco Parenzan

Overview of this book

Microsoft Azure is a cloud computing platform that supports many different programming languages, tools, and frameworks, including both Microsoft-specific and third-party software and systems. This book starts by helping you set up a professional development environments in the cloud and integrating them with your local environment to achieve improved efficiency. You will move on to create front-end and back-end services, and then build cross-platform applications using Azure. Next you’ll get to grips with advanced techniques used to analyze usage data and automate billing operations. Following on from that, you will gain knowledge of how you can extend your on-premise solution to the cloud and move data in a pipeline. In a nutshell, this book will show you how to build high-quality, end-to-end services using Microsoft Azure. By the end of this book, you will have the skillset needed to successfully set up, develop, and manage a full-stack Azure infrastructure.

Deploy a Windows Azure Virtual Machine in an ARM Virtual Network

At this point, we have a network infrastructure over the cloud that is ready to accept new VMs:

Now, we need to define a task to create a virtual machine in an ARM VN. It is a two-phase task:

  1. Create a connection for a VM in an ARM VN.

  2. Create the ARM VM.

Let's start from the connection to the VM. In general, any device that connects to a network has a network card, or a Network Interface (NI). It has some characteristics:

  • It has a private address that is from the address space of the subnet. The IP can be dynamic or static. Dynamic means that the IP address is dynamically assigned by a DHCP service because it is inside a subnet in a VN. Static means that the IP address is assigned during the creation or configuration of the NI. As a rule, an IP address should be used as dynamic. There is always name resolution through Azure DNS; that is, a VM can be reached by its name, and DNS automatically resolve its IP address. Choose a fixed...
