Azure Spot Virtual Machines: Try to restore functionality now generally available
Published date: October 26, 2021
Spot VM Try to restore benefits:
- Attempts to restore Azure Spot Virtual Machines evicted due to capacity.
- Restored Azure Spot Virtual Machines are expected to run for a longer duration with a lower probability of a capacity triggered eviction.
- Improves the lifespan of an Azure Spot Virtual Machine, so workloads run for a longer duration.
- Helps Virtual Machine Scale Sets to maintain the target count for Azure Spot Virtual Machines, similar to maintain target count feature that already exist for Pay-As-You-Go VMs.
Try to restore is disabled in scale sets that use Autoscale. The number of VMs in the scale set is driven by the autoscale rules.
