In addition, users can select the power, memory, capacity, size, and number of Virtual Machines and select from different locations and availability zones to launch.
Azure also provides a Virtual Hard Disk, which is similar to Amazon’s AMI to configure Virtual Machine. The Virtual Hard Disk can be predefined by Microsoft or any third party or be user-defined.
Further, Google introduced the Google Compute engine that lets the users launch VMs into regions and availability groups and introduce cloud computing services.
