Note: Microsoft have made a number of changes to the Azure Portal and VM Scale Set creation experience. You can continue to use this lab, however, please be aware that this lab is out-of-date and is in the process of being re-created.

Welcome to this Azure learning activity, where we will be creating and configuring Load Balancing for a Virtual Machine Scale Set (VMSS).

The goal of this lesson is to gain knowledge and experience with:

  • Dynamic and elastic compute using a VMSS
  • High availability using a Load Balancer

Good luck and enjoy the Learning Activity!

What are Hands-On Labs?

Hands-On Labs are scenario-based learning environments where learners can practice without consequences. Don't compromise a system or waste money on expensive downloads. Practice real-world skills without the real-world risk, no assembly required.
