How to Get Started With the Microsoft Azure Portal

Microsoft Azure Portal provides an integrated web-based console for managing your cloud ecosystem, from building web apps and complex deployments to monitoring them all from a single interface.

Azure New Portal is virtual and minimizes failure and downtime that could disrupt business functioning, as well as helping reduce hardware fees such as purchasing and conjuring. This feature helps reduce disruption costs associated with hardware costs as well as helping your organization save costs associated with purchasing/conjuring new hardware.

Easily manage your cloud resources

The Microsoft Azure Portal makes managing cloud resources simple. Through it, you can quickly create and assemble running environments to host workloads and store data; use services to run apps, mobile apps, chatbots, virtual machines; as well as manage and monitor costs. To get started with it all, sign in with your Microsoft account and follow these steps:

Once signed in, the Azure portal will display your most recently used dashboard when you open it. You can switch your dashboard at any time through either its home page or menu page; each tile represents different data points within your organization’s Azure infrastructure.

These tiles can be organized into a customized view. Additionally, new tiles may be added to your dashboard. With our query editor you can select multiple resources at once and run queries over them in order to produce results as table, bar or donut charts – perfect for sharing across teams! Finally, our dashboard pinning feature makes sharing results with them simple!

Microsoft Azure’s graphical user interface enables you to efficiently manage the lifecycle of your workloads, providing a superior experience over traditional command-line tools. Furthermore, its interface is user-friendly for newcomers; newcomers may find the portal an ideal one-stop shop for managing applications that run on its platform.

Your cloud-based resources will be organized, protected, and controlled with this portal. The management platform consists of four layers – management groups, subscriptions, resource groups and resources. Management groups allow you to oversee security policy compliance for multiple subscriptions at once while following a naming convention or applying resource tags can make life simpler for resource organization and management.

When creating resources in Azure’s portal, they can be assigned to a management group and region for easy management of location. You can also programmatically create resource groups associated with subscriptions.

Stay on top of your costs

If you are the administrator for an Azure subscription, use the portal to manage charges, forecast costs and monitor usage patterns. In addition, view available credit and prepaid commitment balance in the portal – to learn more on how this works visit Get Started with Microsoft Azure.

Create custom views combining multiple Cost analysis charts. Save and share them with others or pin them directly onto an Azure portal dashboard – for instance you could make one that displays the average hourly cost of your web app over time; these views can then be saved as image or Excel files or subscribed to as emails with updated charts every day. To save one, select it then click Save; to pin one to an Azure portal dashboard select it then Pin to dashboard

The Azure application provides you with free access to some tools and offers to help manage cloud costs. With it you can view your Azure bills, track upcoming payments and gain advice and guidance on optimizing workloads to lower costs while using their pricing calculator to estimate projects that involve Azure services.

Signing up for Azure gives you a $200 credit that’s valid for 30 days to give it a test run and pay as you use. You have the flexibility of customizing how much of this service you plan to consume each month.

Billing experience and Cost management tools have been combined into one, making it easier to track your costs. To explore all the various facets of Cost management that relate to billing, watch the Controlling access to cost data video.

Cost management uses different scopes than billing and account management, which rely on Azure role-based access control (Azure RBAC). Below is a table outlining these differences between scopes; also included is information on each scope’s potential roles to assign to it.

Share insights across apps and resources

Azure Portal provides a centralized hub to manage all of your cloud applications. From there you can securely create, store and manipulate data within an encrypted environment; convert simple web apps into cloud-based solutions; as well as keep tabs on costs and usage of services. Azure Portal even makes sharing insights and dashboards with other users simple!

We have implemented new features to make working with your portal simpler, such as making it easier to access resources with a shortcut from the menu bar or viewing recent activities with Change history (preview). Furthermore, we’ve simplified its look and reduced clutter that might interfere with tasks at hand.

Microsoft provides an array of cloud-based software and infrastructure services, including their Web-based Azure portal for managing applications and services. Azure uses a global network of managed data centers to host your apps and processes; you can sign up as a new user for free and take advantage of some popular Azure services free for up to one year after registration.

Through Azure Portal you can purchase additional storage and computing power as well as monitor, diagnose and take action on issues using alerts. Furthermore, Azure portal allows users to quickly locate training materials as well as documentation materials for download.

The portal was designed with mobile use in mind and supports several browsers. Furthermore, its customizable interface enables you to tailor it specifically to suit your working habits; for instance, you may choose to hide certain menu items or collapse specific working panes for more space.

The Azure portal makes it simple and accessible for organizations of any size to share information that matters, from dashboards and custom reports, to accessing support from world-class Azure representatives and submitting feedback directly to product teams. Plus, connecting with others via tutorials and Q&A sessions makes learning from one another easy!
