Support for Basic and Standard A-series VM families support will be retired on 31 August 2024 for Batch pools

Published date: March 29, 2024

On 31 August 2024, we'll retire support for Basic and Standard A-series VMs in Batch pools. Please refer to the original Azure retirement announcement regarding these VM families. 

From now to 31 August 2024, you'll need to migrate your Batch pools to Av2-series VMs, which provide more memory per vCPU and faster storage on solid-state drives (SSDs). You may also migrate to a different Batch-supported VM size


Required action 

To avoid service disruptions, migrate your Batch pools from Basic and Standard A-series VM size to Av2-series or another supported VM size before 31 August 2024. Existing Batch pools cannot be updated with a different VM size and creating a new Batch pool is required for migration.
