On-demand capacity reservations for Azure Virtual Machines now in public preview
Published date: 08 September, 2021
On-demand capacity reservations for Azure Virtual Machines enable your IT organisation to reserve compute capacity for a VM size. The reservation can be for any length of time in any public Azure region or Availability Zone and supports most VM series. You can create and cancel an on-demand capacity reservation at any time, no commitment is required.
The ability for you to access compute capacity – with SLA guarantees* – ahead of actual VM deployments is particularly important to ensure the availability of business-critical applications running on Azure. On-demand capacity reservations can be combined with Azure Reserved VM Instances (RIs) to significantly reduce costs.
On-demand capacity reservations are now in public preview.
*SLAs will be offered when on-demand capacity reservations become generally available.
