SMS Service Using Azure

Introduction

We all know that cloud computing has unlimited possibilities, and with that, we can demand any type of service. In this article, I will explain about sending a short message service (SMS) using Virtual Machine with the help of Ozeking SMS Gateway.
First, let’s take a look on Ozeking SMS system. It is an SMS gateway application with which we can send/receive N number of SMS by connecting to GSM network through internet attached to PC. And for this SMS process, I have selected Windows 2012 Server OS. But, you can select Windows 2016 Server also.

  • Select the location of the Datacenter.
  • Now, we need to choose a disk size for the VM.
  • Click OK in settings and click OK in summary for the validation pass message.


Step 5

The deployment process will take place now. After the successful deployment of VM, we can run it in dashboard.
