Retirement Announcement - Migrate your cloud services to the new Cloud Services (extended support) deployment model before 31 August 2024

On 31 August 2024, we'll retire the Cloud Services (classic) deployment model. Before that date, you'll need to migrate your services that were deployed using this model to Cloud Services (extended support) in Azure Resource Manager, which provides new capabilities, including:

Support for deployment templates.

Role-based access control.

Regional resiliency.

If we don't complete our migration to Cloud Services (extended support) before Sept 1 will the service continue to work on Sept 1 but not deployable or will it stop working on Sept 1?

Hello @PhilipFourie-8643 ,

  1. There is no sunset or end date for this yet. You may consider this as a long term offering for ARM platform.

  2. Yes, Cloud Services (extended support) has standard SLA as Cloud Services (classic) and we provide support for this product just like any other generally available product.

Your documentation states "VIP Swap capability may be used to swap between two cloud services (extended support). To test and stage a new release of a cloud service, deploy a cloud service (extended support) and tag it as VIP swappable with another cloud service (extended support)".

I cannot find any further explanations on how to actually go about doing this. It would be great if there were steps showing how to achieve this functionality.
