Red Hat Virtual Machine Scale Sets Pricing
Auto-scale your VMs with high availability
Virtual Machine Scale sets make it easy to build highly scalable applications by allowing you to easily deploy and manage identical VMs as a set. Built on the Azure Resource Manager deployment model, VM Scale sets are fully integrated with Azure load balancing and auto-scale, and support Windows, Linux, custom images and extensions.
Virtual Machine Scale Sets is currently available on all VM sizes supporting Windows or Linux virtual machines. You are only charged for the compute instances you choose, as well as the other underlying infrastructure resources consumed, such as storage and networking. There are no incremental charges for the Virtual Machine Scale Sets service itself.

Support and SLA
- Free billing and subscription management support
- Flexible support plans starting at $29.0/month (note: Microsoft support does not include support for Linux images in the Azure Marketplace, though in some cases Linux publishers offer support as per the plans above). Find a plan
- Scale Set is a free service, therefore it does not have a financially backed SLA itself. However, if the Scale Set includes Virtual Machines in at least two Fault Domains, the availability of the underlying Virtual Machines SLA applies. See the Virtual Machines SLA for more details.
