Hello Rashid,
VMs are stored as .VHD files in your local Azure storage. You can perform an asynchronous blob copy to make a physical copy of a .vhd file. This operation is very fast within the same data center and may take few seconds.

You can also take blob snapshots, and return to a previous snapshot later. A snapshot is read-only (which you can copy from later) and takes up no space initially. However, as storage pages are changed, the snapshot grows.

Hope that helps.
