Virtual machine scale sets—Automatic image upgrades for custom images

Published date: April 14, 2020

Virtual machine scale sets now provide the ability to automatically deploy new versions of custom images to scale set virtual machines. Enabling automatic OS image upgrades on your scale set helps ease update management by safely and automatically upgrading the OS disk for all virtual machines in the scale set. This capability is now available in preview for custom images through Shared Image Gallery

Shared Image Gallery enables image publishing across multiple subscriptions and regions through a centralized image management platform. Automatic OS image upgrade monitors your gallery images and automatically begins scale set upgrades when a new image version is deployed, facilitating faster image deployment without additional overhead. 

To learn more and enable it for your scale sets, read the documentation.
