Windows 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 autoscale, and support Windows, Linux, custom images, and extensions.

Virtual Machine Scale Sets is currently available on all VM sizes supporting of 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. Standard egress charges apply.

General purpose

Balanced CPU-to-memory ratio. Ideal for testing and development, small to medium databases and low to medium traffic web servers.

B-series

B-series are economical virtual machines that provide a low-cost option for workloads that typically run at a low to moderate baseline CPU performance, but sometimes need to burst to significantly higher CPU performance when the demand rises. These workloads do not require the use of the full CPU all the time, but occasionally will need to burst to finish some tasks more quickly. Many applications such as development and test servers, low traffic web servers, small databases, micro services, servers for proof-of-concepts, build servers and code repositories fit into this model.
