Azure Cloud Shell will be a browser-based shell experience running in the cloud to help manage your Azure resources. It will include support for popular command-line tools and programming languages that Microsoft will curate and update. You'll be able to persist your files across sessions by attaching Azure File storage. When used alongside Azure portal’s familiar GUI experience, Cloud Shell will add the power of an authenticated shell experience for greater flexibility. Cloud Shell will save you the trouble of configuring and maintaining your own admin machine by providing a clean, ready-to-use shell experience every time. In addition, it'll be available virtually anywhere.
