I’m not planning on extensively using Azure right now, so I’m just writing some quick notes as I research how I would migrate Bot Land.

  • Resource groups don’t cost anything; they’re just logical groupings like a folder.
  • Making a VM
    • Just go through the steps in the UI. Note that connecting storage is the second step and has its own costs associated with it (and I believe these persist even after you’ve deleted the VM).
    • To connect via SSH, just download the generated .pem file and run this command:
      • ssh -i path_to_key.pem username@IP
        • (don’t forget the username!)
    • By default, auto-shutdown is enabled, but it can be turned off via Operations → Auto-shutdown → Enabled (reference).
  • Using SendGrid
