What is Azure Resource Group?

A resource group is a container that holds related resources for an Azure solution. The resource group can include all the resources for the solution, or only those resources that you want to manage as a group.

The resource group collects metadata from each individual resou.rce to facilitate more granular management than at the subscription level. This not only has advantages for administration and cost management, but also for applying role-based access controls

How many resources are in a resource group?

By default, you can deploy up to 800 instances of a resource type in each resource group. However, some resource types are exempt from the 800 instance limit. This article lists the Azure resource types that can have more than 800 instances in a resource group.
