Microsoft Adds Azure Dedicated Host Option
Microsoft adds Azure dedicated host option for running VMs on single-tenant servers. Azure Dedicated Host, now in preview, is aimed at those with compliance requirements around physical security, integrity and monitoring. This also is a benefit to IT organizations that need or want to offer host-level isolation. Microsoft’s Azure Government cloud is not a single-tenant service so this new option is a game changer for Microsoft, especially since Amazon and Google already offer this type of service.
Azure Dedicated Host supports Windows and Linux VMs, giving customers further control over the underlying host type; processor brand and capabilities; number of cores; and type and size of the VMs deployed. If you want to get fancy, users can mix and match different Azure VM sizes within the same VM series on a given host.
