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. Each data disk is 2300 IOPS for the premium VM sizes, except for the Basic A series. For Basic A, the data disk size is 500 IOPS.

Basic A

Note

Basic A virtual machine sizes are retired for creating virtual machine scale sets (VMSS) through the portal. To create a VMSS with this size, use PowerShell or a template.
