Azure Stack Edge Virtual Machine Support is in public preview
Published date: December 09, 2020
Azure Stack Edge hosts Azure virtual machines so you can run your VM based IoT, AI, and business applications on an Azure appliance at your location.
The system includes deployment and management from the Azure portal, meaning you use the Azure Portal to deploy a VM Image and a VM to your Edge device at your location. Because Azure Stack Edge supports Azure VMs, you can build and test your VM image in Azure before deploying straight to the edge. For local control, ARM compatible APIs and templates can deploy and manage VMs, even when the device is disconnected from Azure.
