Adding to what @Udaiappa Ramachandran has said, paid subscriptions can find instructions for submitting a ticket in our documentation for region access. You'll need to create a support request with an Issue Type of Service and subscription Limit (quotas) and Quota type of Compute-VM (core-vCPUs) subscription limit increases:
You can also look for VMs in neighboring regions (this has been effective for some free subscriptions so far). If you are having difficulty finding one, reach out to us and we'll be happy to help.
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.
