Virtual machine scale sets—Automatic image upgrades for custom images now available

Published date: July 01, 2020

Automatically deploy new versions of custom images to scale set virtual machines using the new capabilities of virtual machine scale sets. Automatic OS image upgrade monitors your image gallery and automatically begins scale set upgrades when a new image version is deployed, facilitating faster image deployment without additional overhead. Enabling automatic OS image upgrades will safely upgrade the OS disk for all virtual machines in the scale set, helping to ease update management.

This capability is now available for custom images through Shared Image Gallery, which enables image publishing across multiple subscriptions and regions through a centralized image management platform.

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