B1S size not available for my subscription

Gábor Szabó 1 Reputation point

I registered to try out Azure services. I want to use a Virtual Machine, but the size B1S, available freely for this account cannot be chosen - it is in "Not available" section in all region.

How can I use it? Can I use it at all?

Azure Virtual Machines
Azure Virtual Machines
An Azure service that is used to provision Windows and Linux virtual machines.

    Firstly, apologies for any inconvenience this issue may have caused.

    Few VM sizes are currently not available in certain region due to demand (this is the case for many free trial accounts VM sizes). The solution is to create your VM resources in neighboring regions during these periods of high demand.

    There are few other customers who reported similar issue, and redeploying in another region was successful.

    What is Microsoft doing to avoid capacity issues in the future?
    Ensuring capacity for our customers is a top priority for Microsoft and we are working around the clock to deliver on this. The increasing demand for Azure services is evidence of the popularity of Azure, and emphasizes the need to scale up our infrastructure even more rapidly. With that in mind, we are expediting expansion and are improving our resource deployment process to respond to this strong customer demand. We have identified several improvements on how we load-balance under a high resource usage situation, and how to trigger the timely deployment of needed resources. Furthermore, we are increasing our capacity significantly – and will continue to plan for strong customer demand across all of our regions. This September 2021 blog post covers improvements towards delivering a resilient cloud supply chain.

    Hope that helps.

    Hello @Gábor Szabó

    Welcome to Microsoft Q&A Platform.

    Have you tried using a different size?
    Are you using a free/student account? (It could happen that this size is not available for your subscription)
