Azure Functions Premium plan is now generally available
Updated: 04 November, 2019
At Ignite 2019, we’re announcing the general availably of the Azure Functions Premium plan. It allows enterprises to leverage in-production scenarios fast, serverless scale while retaining the network isolation and consistent performance of a dedicated hosting plan.
The Premium plan allows serverless developers to run Functions without a cold start by pre-warming instances, setting minimum and maximum scale values to ensure that you always have enough capacity on hand and never overpower the dependencies your apps call, and configuring your instance size up to an EP3 instance with four D series cores and 12 GB of memory.
For a rundown of functionality and an overview of the Premium plan, head on over to our documentation
