Introducing maintenance control for platform updates

10 December 2019

We are taking a look at the preview of a maintenance control feature for platform updates on Azure Dedicated Host and Isolated virtual machines. Using this feature customers can take control of host updates for a period of 35-days in a rolling window. At public preview we are making CLI, PowerShell, APIs available. Portal will come later.

Introducing cost-effective increment snapshots of Azure managed disks in preview
