Public IP SKU upgrade generally available
Published date: January 11, 2021
Azure public IP addresses now support the ability to be upgraded from Basic to Standard SKU. Additionally, any Basic Public Load Balancer can now be upgraded to a Standard Public Load Balancer, while retaining the same public IP address. This is supported via PowerShell, CLI, templates, and API and available across all Azure regions.
