You can also apply Azure Hybrid Benefit for Windows Server on virtual machine scale set as well.
Consumed Cores per Virtual Machine Scale Sets are measured however the usual minimum of 8 cores still applies. This becomes a bit clearer when we look at a recent AHB management blog with a VMSS example:
