Quota types in Azure Stack

Applies to: Azure Stack integrated systems and Azure Stack Development Kit

Quotas define the limits of resources that a user subscription can provision or consume. For example, a quota might allow a user to create up to five VMs. Each resource can have its own types of quotas.

Important

It can take up to two hours for new quotas to be available in the user portal or before a changed quota is enforced.

Compute quota types

Alternatively, you can follow this procedure to edit a quota:

  1. On the default dashboard of the administrator portal, find the Resource providers tile.
  2. Select the service with the quota that you want to modify, like Compute, Network, or Storage.
  3. Next, select Quotas, and then select the quota you want to change.
  4. On the Set Storage quotas, Set Compute quotas, or Set Network quotas pane (depending on the type of quota you've chosen to edit), edit the values, and then select Save.

Edit original configuration

You can choose to edit the original configuration of a quota instead of using an add-on plan. When you edit a quota, the new configuration automatically applies globally to all plans that use that quota and all existing subscriptions that use those plans. The editing of a quota is different than when you use an add-on plan to provide a modified quota, which a user chooses to subscribe to.

The new values for the quota apply globally to all plans that use the modified quota and to all existing subscriptions that use those plans.
