Lets Review What are different resources that get created when we create a VM
Create a new linux machine under a new resource group and look at resources created
- If you already have a network you can select one or azure will create one for you. This network will have one subnet
- Logs of the VM are stored in Storage Account
- When we create a vm we might require a public IP, so Azure public IP Address is also created
