This portal is based on “Service Management model” whereas the “new” Azure portal works on the Azure Resource Manager.  For computation, network resources, and storage, you can decide between ARM or classic deployment model.

Though the resources can be deployed by either of these deployment models, both these models are not fully compatible with one another. There is no path available to excel from Service Manager Version to ARM for any specific resource.  Microsoft recommends that new resources must use ARM and any current resources should be considered for redeployment through ARM.
