Virtual Machine size for ML Exercise doesn't exist

Holly Grandin 1 Reputation point

I am new and working on a Machine Learning Exercise. It is asking me to create a Compute Cluster with specified settings.

Under the Virtual Machine Size category, it tells me to search for: Standard_DS11_v2 -- but when I search on that it isn't found. I have the free subscription as I am just getting started. What should I search for instead to complete the exercise?

    Hello, @Holly Grandin !

    What VM size can I use for my machine learning (ML) exercise?
    The Standard_DS11_v2 is a memory optimized virtual machine. I would recommend looking for something else in the DSv2-series 11-15 or a memory optimized VM with a similar spec. The Azure virtual machines selector tool is very helpful for finding a VM with specific requirements. I'll reach out directly to see if you need additional guidance.

    Drop searching for "Standard...", just search for "DS11-v2" and it should be there
