Updated April 20, 2016: Azure VM Scale Sets are now generally available. The GA announcement is here: Azure Virtual Machine Scale Sets GA, and the product page is here: Virtual Machine Scale Sets.


In this episode Chris Risner and Haishi Bai are joined by Guy Bowerman, Program Manager on the Azure Compute Engineering team focusing on Linux and Scale.  He joins us to talk about Virtual Machine Scale Sets.  Scale Sets are a way to deploy and manage a set of identical VMs.  Scale Sets handles scaling up and down of your VMs in an intelligent manner so the correct VM is always spun down.  Scale Sets also integrate with Azure Autoscale and Azure Load Balancer.  Scale Sets are currently in private preview but will very soon be in public preview.
