In this video-blog, we are about to cover Microsoft
Azure’s important concept Virtual Machine Scale Set,
and how it plays a key role in Scaling Virtual Machines.
One of the biggest benefits of cloud computing is that it can
be elastic. Like a rubber band, the idea behind elastic
computing is that you can stretch or shrink your cloud
service usage to accommodate changes in workload.
Azure includes several services with elastic features. One of
the newest, and least understood, is Azure Virtual Machine

Virtual Machine Scale Set, an interesting service offered by
Microsoft Azure, helps to create and manage a set of
identical, auto-scaling Virtual Machines (VMs). The number
of VM instances can automatically increase or decrease
based on scheduled conditions.
Auto-scaling is a way to automatically scale up or down the
number of compute resources that are being allocated to
your application based on its needs at any given time.
The key point is that you can now design a scalable
architecture that will automatically scale-up or scale-down
to meet your needs over the lifetime of your setup
regardless of how fast/slow or big/small your site grows
over that time.
Here are the most popular ways of autoscaling:
Vertical Scaling is an attempt to increase or decrease the
capacity of a single machine, also called scaling up or
down. Here the resources such as processing power,
storage, memory, and more are added to an existing work
It is done to increase the capacity of existing hardware or
software by adding resources. It can enhance your server
without manipulating your code. But it is limited by the fact
that you can only get as big as the size of the server.
For example, you could move an application to a larger
