On-demand capacity reservations in public preview
Published date: March 03, 2021
On-demand capacity reservations for Azure Virtual Machines is a new feature that enables IT organizations to reserve compute capacity for a virtual machine size in any public Azure region. In essence, you can now obtain a capacity SLA for your VM deployments. The reservation can be for any length of time and supports most VM sizes.
The ability for you to access compute capacity – with SLA guarantees and 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 to significantly reduce costs.
On-demand capacity reservations for Azure Virtual Machines will be available in preview soon.
