Connecting to Microsoft Azure using PowerShell

Before using PowerShell cmdlets for Microsoft Azure, we must first have an active Microsoft Azure subscription, install the necessary prerequisites, and connect to the Microsoft Azure subscription. In addition, as Microsoft Azure is a cloud service, we must have an Internet connection in order to manage it.

Microsoft Azure subscriptions

Microsoft Azure is a subscription-based service, typically billed monthly. Microsoft Developer Network (MSDN) subscribers receive a free monthly credit for development purposes. In addition, Microsoft offers a free trial of Microsoft Azure for one month (up to $200 worth of services).
