Azure scalable solution for RStudio on the Cloud

Does Azure has some similar solution like that offer from AWS as below?

https://aws.amazon.com/blogs/machine-learning/get-started-with-rstudio-on-amazon-sagemaker/

Presently I am able to install RStudio on Azure VM, but its limitation is that whenever its data is too huge, we need to resize the VM or increase its RAM.

I am looking into somewhat similar solution from Azure, which the above link from AWS, which is able to auto-scale according to the size of the data and its computation.

Please let me know which services in Azure that we can have somewhat similar capability as what AWS has.

Thanks.

@TANThiamHuat-5172 Currently, there is no offering from Azure Machine Learning with a managed RStudio as AWS Sagemaker.
You can use execute R script module as part of Azure ML designer but this offers very limited functionality with only some pre-installed packages in the R script. This module also needs to be part of the experiment combined with other data processing and inference modules.

The only offering that has R studio preinstalled is the Azure DSVM in windows and linux configurations. This is similar to what you want to achieve with a standard VM by installing the same. These DSVM also come with pre-configured sizes so you can choose the required RAM based on compute requirements. I do not think you can configure auto scaling but you can choose to create highly available configuration using the advanced options or choosing more than one availability zones. I hope this helps!!
