In the previous article, we talked about what’s ARM and the benefits of working with it to better manage your resources, manage your billing, and an easy way to deploy more resources in the future.
In this article, we will show you how to create and deploy ARM using Azure Portal.

Create Azure Group

1. Login to your Azure Portal
2. From the Azure Portal Click on New

3. Type Resource Group in the search box

5. Click Create

16. Save the zip file and unzip it for future use
17. Now you have the option to create your new VM or skip this process to create your resources using the template you just downloaded
