Difference between scale sets and availability zones

Difference between scale sets and availability zones

3 Answers

Hi, the availability zone is the physical place where you deploy your VM. Probably in your case will be the region inside Azure. Usually, the availability zone is also combined with the fault domain and update domain. Scale set is increasing or decreasing the VM instance based on the load. Scaling can be Horizontal, like add or remove a VM, or can be Vertical, like we have a VM azure automatically add resources to the same distance to manage better the load (CPU, Disk etc…)


Thank you !

What will be the VM names in the scale set when they are automatically created?

Oops, sorry. I meant to ask a question.

Hey there 🙂

An Availiblity zone is a unique physical locations within a region. Each zone is made up of one or more datacenters equipped with independent power, cooling, and networking.

A scale set is a group of load balanced virtual machines.
