Request host quota for Azure VMware Solution

In this how-to, you'll request host quota/capacity for Azure VMware Solution. You'll submit a support ticket to have your hosts allocated whether it's for a new deployment or an existing one.

If you have an existing Azure VMware Solution private cloud and want more hosts allocated, you'll follow the same process.

Important

It can take up to five business days to allocate the hosts, depending on the number requested. So request what is needed for provisioning, so you don't need to request a quota increase as often.
