Upcoming changes to Standard Public IPs and Standard Load Balancers

Published date: August 31, 2020

With Network API version 2020-08-01, zone behavior for Standard SKU resources (Azure Load Balancer and Public IP addresses) will be updated such that:

  • when no zone is specified, a non-zonal resource is created
  • when a single zone is specified, a zonal resource is created 
  • when multiple zones are specified in a region with Availability Zones, a zone-redundant resource is created

A zone-redundant resource can only be created in regions where Availability Zones are supported

Previously, when no zone was specified, a zone-redundant resource was created. No changes will be made to existing Public IP or Standard Load Balancer resources with previous API versions.
