From the Microsoft doc link below, it says the public ip address per virtual machine limit is 256 but in reality the virtual machine can only have maximum of up to 8 depending on type and sizes and therefore 8 public ip address is also the maximum it can be associated with.

Could you help to elaborate what does 256 limit per VM refer to in the link below please? And whether 256 public ip addresses can be indeed associated with a single VM?

    I believe this document just lists the hard limits and while this may not be actually possible today to apply this many public IPs, potentially in future it might be so this is the upper hard limit allowed.
