Azure Government Marketplace images

Microsoft Azure Government Marketplace provides a similar experience as Azure Marketplace. You can choose to deploy prebuilt images from Microsoft and our partners, or upload your own VHDs. This approach gives you the flexibility to deploy your own standardized images if needed.


We recommend that you use the Azure Az PowerShell module to interact with Azure. See Install Azure PowerShell to get started. To learn how to migrate to the Az PowerShell module, see Migrate Azure PowerShell from AzureRM to Az.


To obtain a list of virtual machine images available in Azure Government, connect to Azure Government via PowerShell and run the following commands:

Connect-AzAccount -Environment AzureUSGovernment

Get-AzVMImagePublisher -Location USGovVirginia | `
Get-AzVMImageOffer | `

Some of the prebuilt images include pay-as-you-go licensing for specific software. Work with your Microsoft account team or reseller for Azure Government-specific pricing. For more information, see Virtual machine pricing.
