  • Hi,

    Images is the feature which is similar to AWS AMI. You can check this document to know about converting a Azure VM into an image.

    You can also automate the image creation using Image builder service which internally uses packer. If you are using packer you can use the same scripts here as well. Document is here. Its in preview now.

    Once you create an image, You may need to

    • make it available in some regions(sync to regions), 
    • versioning of the image
    • sharing the image with other subscriptions
    • placing particular version of image in some regions etc

    To achieve the above points, you can use Shared image gallery. 

    You can find more information about shared image galleries in the document here.

    Packer or image builder service can build the image and commit into the shared image gallery. I suggest you to use the shared image gallery if you want to achieve some of the points discusses earlier.
