General Availability: Share VM images publicly with community gallery - Azure Compute Gallery feature
Published date: 21 September, 2023
With community gallery, a new feature of Azure Compute Gallery, you can now easily share your VM images with the wider Azure community. By setting up a 'community gallery', you can group your images and make them available to other Azure customers. As a result, any Azure customer can utilize images from the community gallery to create resources such as virtual machines (VMs) and VM scale sets.
Azure customers can then deploy VMs and VM scale sets using the portal, CLI, rest API, and PowerShell with the images you published and shared.
Additionally, Fedora, CentOS Stream, AlmaLinux, FreeBSD, RockyLinux and other publishers will be able to share their non-commercial images and software packages with their customers using community galleries on Azure Compute Gallery.
More capabilities include:
- Browse view, an easy way to view and filter existing community images using the Azure portal
- Support for confidential VM supported images and trusted launch supported images based on regional availability
