Generally available: Load Balancer SKU upgrade through PowerShell script
Published date: January 10, 2022
You can now upgrade your Azure Load Balancer from Basic SKU to Standard SKU by using a PowerShell script. By upgrading to Standard SKU, the Load Balancer enables the network layer traffic to drive higher performance and stronger resiliency, along with an improved integration experience with other Azure services. The PowerShell script creates the Standard SKU Load Balancer with the same configurations as the Basic Load Balancer. In additon, the script migrates the backend resources to the Standard Load Balancer for you.
