Hello Friends, I worked on a project requiring many temporary VMs.In that project, I had to find a way to reduce the cost of the VMs. I knew there were several different ways to reduce the cost of temporary Virtual Machines. The first option was on the table Spot Virtual Machines, and we could take advantage of the unused capacity in Azure. Regarding pricing, Spot VMs are tremendously cheaper than regular VMs. However, there is a catch: Spot VMs can be evicted at anytime. We can use Spot VMs for workloads that can be interrupted, such as batch jobs, render farms, and fault-tolerant applications. In this article, I will show you how to deploy Spot VMs with PowerShell. Let's dive in!
