Resource Group

Azure Resource Group is a logical container that allows users to organize and manage related Azure resources, such as virtual machines, storage accounts, and network interfaces, as a single unit. It provides a way to manage and monitor resources collectively, rather than individually.Resource groups are created within an Azure subscription and can be used to organize resources based on different criteria, such as environment, application, or department. Resources can be added, removed, or modified within a resource group as needed.‍
