Microsoft Azure operates in two modes; Classic and Azure Resource Manager (ARM).
- Classic is the traditional way to create cloud resources in Azure cloud.
- You manage Azure classic resources by accessing https://manage.windowsazure.com/ portal
- To access ARM mode, log on to https://portal.azure.com/ portal
- In Classic mode, every Azure resource operates as a single unit and management of resources become difficult.
- In ARM mode, every Azure resource is created in a group called "Resource Group", which, in turn, allows management of resources as a group.
