    Hello, @josim !

    What GPU VM availability is there for free and trial accounts?

    Azure provides multiple accounts for students to explore and learn with Azure resources:

    • Azure free student account: Use your university or school email to sign up and renew each year you're a student. Start with $100 Azure credit and no credit card required.
    • Azure free account: Popular services free for 12 months, 55+ other always free services, and start with $200 Azure credit for the first 30 days.

    NVIDIA has an Azure RTX Virtual Workstation quick start guide however it should be noted that Azure credits generally do not apply to third party VM images (so manual setup on compatible hardware may be required for a truly free VM). Also, GPU VMs are very popular at the moment so you'll need to check for GPU availability (South Central US is usually a good place to start) and new/promotional subscriptions would have lower priority in regions with limited availability:

    Before implementing any restrictions on customers, we first pull every lever available to expedite new capacity, and to preserve existing capacity – this includes shaping internal customers to non-constrained regions whenever possible. If these steps are not sufficient to avoid a capacity shortfall, we then implement “offer restrictions” which prevent newly-created subscriptions from being able to deploy to the constrained region.

    I hope this is helpful! If you still have questions, please let us know in the comments.
