Create Azure Resource Group
The first step of using Microsoft Azure is creating a resource group. A resource group is a container that holds related resources for Azure solution. It includes all those resources that need to be managed as a group. You can create a resource group in Azure either through a portal provided by Azure or through Azure Cloud Shell.
Using Azure Portal
In case you are using Microsoft Azure Portal, these following steps will help you create an Azure Resource Group.
Log in to Microsoft Azure Portal.
On the left most tab, click on Resource groups.
Under the Resource groups tag, click on the + Add option. Type the name suitable for your resource group.
Click on Review + create to review the required resource group properties.
Click on Create to create you resource group in Azure.
To check whether the resource group has been successfully created or not, from the left most pane, go to Resource groups. Under the Name list, verify that the name of the resource group created is present.
Using Azure Shell
- Log in to the Microsoft Azure Cloud Shell.
- In order to create a new resource group, execute the following command.
az group create --name aks --location centralus
After successfully creating Azure resource group, create Kubernetes cluster, explained in the next chapter.
