Creating SPOT VMs in Azure


Microsoft has finally launched the SPOT VMs, which we already had in other clouds such as AWS and GCP. These virtual machines provide access to unused computational resources in Azure and also large discounts. However, they cannot be reserved and Azure can interrupt them at any time to use its resources. The SPOT VMs are ideal for:

  • Workloads that can support interruptions
  • Development and testing
  • Applications that do not store state
  • Short-lived tasks
  • Batch jobs

Creating Proximity Positioning Groups

Hello guys,

Do you know about Proximity Placement Groups in Azure and what they are used for? With proximity groups, you can place your Virtual Machines as close as possible, thus achieving the best possible latency. These proximity groups are a logical grouping to ensure that computational resources are physically located close to each other.

Creating 2nd Generation VMs in Azure.

On the last day of 11/04/2019, Microsoft finally made second-generation VMs generally available, which we had on our local Hyper-v since Windows Server 2012 R2. They have a new architecture based on UEFI that is different from the BIOS-based architecture of generation 1. With these VMs, according to Microsoft, you will be able to:

  • Create larger VMs (up to 12 TBs).
  • Provision OS disk sizes that exceed 2 TBs.
