The Azure website uses language and country codes for its web addresses, which affect display of the content in the appropriate language. The typical URL construction uses the format:
https://[Microsoft or Azure domain]/[country-code]/[destination]/, in which the country code controls the language display and the remainder of the URL specifies the content.
For example, when viewing the documentation center for US English, the URL is https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/. If viewing the same page for Spanish (Spain), the correct URL is https://docs.microsoft.com/es-es/azure/.
The URLs for Azure used throughout this document include the country code for English in the United States. For other languages, URLs may differ based on the settings on your computer, and the languages and country codes Microsoft supports.
If you are browsing in a language other than US English, or if your machine settings are configured for a different language, the language and country code portion of the various URLs cited in this guide may differ accordingly.
Microsoft has substantial documentation on using Azure available in its documentation center.

The full range of capabilities provided by Rapid Recovery Core on premises is available to users in the Azure cloud. From the Rapid Recovery perspective, no features are restricted. However, there are practical limitations, and some restrictions due to the limitations of the Azure platform. Following are a few examples:
The Rapid Snap for Virtual (agentless) feature of Rapid Recovery lets you protect virtual machines hosted on ESXi and Hyper-V machines without installing the Rapid Recovery Agent software on each VM guest. Since Azure users have no access to a hypervisor, this feature is not supported. This is an Azure limitation.
