A8-A11 Azure VM Sizes Will Be Retired Mar. 2021

The A8–A11 Azure VM sizes will be retired on Mar. 1, 2021. This is the first retirement of an Azure VM size, and it is likely others will follow. Customers should evaluate their Azure VM usage for older-generation VM sizes and consider plans to migrate to newer generations. All customer A8–A11 Azure VMs remaining on Mar. 1, 2021, will be stopped, set to a deallocated state, and no longer be billed. Customers with existing A8–A11 VMs currently can deploy more instances of the same size; however, customers without existing A8–A11 VMs can no longer create them.
