Azure Virtual Machine (VM) Scale Sets

Play Azure Virtual Machine (VM) Scale Sets


Scott learns from Neil Gat about Azure VM Scale Sets. VM Scale Sets are an Azure Compute resource you can use to deploy and manage a collection of virtual machines as a set. Scale sets are well suited for building large-scale services targeting big compute, big data, and containerized workloads – all of which are increasing in significance as cloud computing continues to evolve.

    You can configure your servers via custom images or extensions :).

    In the video was mentioned that VM Scale Sets are in Public Preview, which I think is wrong. VM Scale set are GA. I also don't see related feature here -

    The two app/code deployment methods here are using the JSON templates to script application installs or using virtual machine templates with everything pre-installed.  What I'd really like to see is some of the Site Recovery technology used that allows you to modify a base image in real time that will then be deployed to all of the other scale sets.  That would put Azure miles ahead of AWS with traditional infrastructure organizations who don't have a staff of brilliant scripters keeping them on the bleeding edge of technology.
