Improve Azure Spot Virtual Machines runtime and simulate evictions with new features in public preview

Published date: March 03, 2021

With Azure Spot Virtual Machines (Spot VMs), IT organizations can acquire scalable compute capacity at deep discounts for interruptible workloads.

New ‘try & restore’ capabilities can now improve the overall runtime of workloads running on Spot virtual machines if they get evicted due to capacity constraints. This new capability applies when a Spot VM is part of a virtual machine scale set.

Customers can also use recently added REST APIs to simulate evictions and test the behavior of their workload making sure it can tolerate interruptions when deployed on Spot VMs.
