Translations:Creating a Windows VM/1/en
It is possible to create a Windows VM in the Compute Canada cloud, however, Compute Canada does not provide licenses for those Windows VMs. Upon request, a Windows Server 2012 Evaluation image can be made available for evaluations purposes only, for a period of 180 days. When you request access to the Windows image you will also be provided with a username to use when connecting to the VM. The process of creating a Windows VM is very similar to the process for creating a Linux VM with some notable differences. If you have not yet created a VM before I would suggest first learning to create some Linux based VMs and then return to these instructions once you are comfortable with the process of creating VMs.
