Availability Zones Failover RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello Experts,

    I'm just diving more deeper into the use of Availability Zones and I have a question.

    If I have one single VM deployed into an Availability (for example zone 1) within an Azure region, would the VM failover automatically failover to Zone 2 if there are infrastructure issues in Zone 1?

  • Hello,

    For the scenario mentioned in your query, VM fail-over is not automatic.

    When leveraging Availability Zones, to overcome disasters it is recommended to have 2 VM's deployed across AZ's and use a Load Balancer to ensure uptime of application. Once the AZ is healthy the distribution of load from LB will be back to normal and there will be no interruption from the application.
