How can I replicate an Azure Virtual Machine?

0 votes

I need to install a few software on a virtual machine in order to test my application. It would take 2-3hours to set it up. Can I just replicate the virtual machine 3 times after that, so that I don't need to spend another 5 hours to install the software on the other 2 virtual machines?
