Azure VM suddenly went down occasionally

Hi everybody,
I've just registered for the Azure 12-month trial and is very excited to try it out! The only thing that bothered me right now is that Ubuntu VM for wordpress sometime have a hiccup such as:

  1. The wordpress blog suddenly went down when I was putting to much tasks into it (like installing several plugins, install one or two themes at once)
  2. I can't SSH to my VM after a few hours (usually 8 hours) the error it returned is Operation timed out.

These problems occur to me in multiple VMs as I have tried delete and create another one.
For more information, I'm running Ubuntu 16 LTS free 750 hours on Asia region.
Hope somebody can help me figure out. Thank you.

    The problem occurs again and now restarting, stop or starting a server wouldn't help as you can see here.

    What's the size of the VM have you provisioned? What disk type are you using?
