Virtual machine sizes supported in Azure Stack

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

This article lists the virtual machine (VM) sizes that are available in Azure Stack.

General purpose

General purpose VM sizes provide a balanced CPU-to-memory ratio. They are used for testing and development, small to medium databases, and low to medium traffic web servers.
