Resize the Azure Virtual Machine
Before jumping to the topic - Resize an Azure VM, let’s look into the Microsoft Virtual machines selector tool to find the right VMs for our needs and budget.
It gives us great insight with the below options:
- Find VMs by workload type
- Find VMs by OS and software
- Find VMs by deployment region
You can ref this link for more - azure.microsoft.com/en-gb/pricing/vm-selector
Also, if you are not aware what size to select then refer the below table for available sizes in Azure.
Resize the VM from Azure Portal
Login into Azure Portal:portal.azure.com/#home
Go to Virtual Machines page
Open the VM which we want to resize
Click the Size in left menu
Pick a new size from the list of available sizes and then select Resize
Verify the size Open the VM and check the Size
It's done. Our VM size is increased to Standard B2ms and got 8 GiB memory
Note: changing the VM size, may cause the VM to be restarted (if the virtual machine is currently running).
If our VM is running and still we didn't see the increased size then stopping and starting the virtual machine may reveal more sizes.
Go to the VM and stop the resource
Delete the resources
The VM is deleted now.
