    Hi @Ahmad Munif ,

    without any details regarding the application you want to run on the VM it's really hard recommend anything.
    Do you have any requirements from the vendor of the software?

    I would maybe start with a generic VM SKU like Ddv5 or Ddsv5-series:
    Then run some tests and take a look on the CPU and memory usage and also the disk IOPS.
    Switching between VM SKUs is relative easy. Depending on your tests you can increase/decrease the VM SKU in the same series. But it's also possible to switch to a different VM series:
    Compute optimized:
    Memory optimized:
