Hello !

I'm writing this post to ask a question that will help me choose my VPS.
My goal is to run a live studio or OBS that will broadcast an interactive game live on TikTok.
I understand that this can be quite demanding on the GPU.
I've been told that some VPS providers can ban the user if they consume too many resources on the PC.
Is this the case with Microsoft Azure?
Here is an example of the type of interactive game that will be run on the VPS: https://youtu.be/WTuYqgjUy9A.

Thank you in advance for your answers.

Florian.

    Hello

    Microsoft Azure offers a wide range of virtual machine (VM) sizes, including GPU-optimized VMs that are designed for compute-intensive, graphics-intensive, and visualization workloads. These VMs are available with single, multiple, or fractional GPUs and can be used to run demanding applications such as interactive games.

    As for the concern about being banned for consuming too many resources, I couldn’t find any information about Microsoft Azure banning users for consuming too many resources on their virtual machines. However, it’s always a good idea to monitor your resource usage and ensure that you are staying within the limits of your subscription.
