DA VM Series Availability for AKS RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi All. We are working to decide which VM size we want to use for our AKS cluster. We came across the DA series (D series that runs on AMD architecture) and want to try it out for evaluation.

    According to the AKS Pricing Calculator page, DA series VM's are available (i.e. D8a v4, D16a v4). However, when I go to create a new AKS nodepool (Central US) of those sizes, they do not appear in the list. I notice that if I go to create a bare VM resource in the same location (Central US) the DA series VM's do show up in the list.

    Are AMD D series VM's not available for AKS? If so, are there any plans to make it available in the future?

    I'm sure there is something that I'm missing. Thanks in advance!
