Microsoft announced the preview of Microsoft Azure Dedicated Host, a new Azure service that enables customers to run Linux and Windows virtual machines on single-tenant physical servers. Microsoft Azure Dedicated Host provides physical servers that host one or more Azure virtual machines. Your server is dedicated to your organization and workloads – capacity is not shared with other customers. This host-level isolation helps address compliance requirements. As you provision the host, you gain visibility into and control over the server infrastructure, and you determine the host’s maintenance policies.
Microsoft Azure Dedicated Host is charged at the host level regardless of the number of Azure Virtual Machines (VM) you run on the host. Software licenses are billed separately from compute resources at a VM level based on usage. If you’re eligible, you can use Azure Hybrid Benefit for additional savings.
