How can we improve Azure Virtual Machines?

Azure Fence agent

Azure Fence agent - Need to reduce the failover time from 10 -15 Minutes to minimum

If you do not want to invest in one additional virtual machine, you can also use the Azure Fence agent. The downside is that a failover can take between 10 to 15 minutes if a resource stop fails or the cluster nodes cannot communicate which each other anymore.

    With other cloud vendors providing fencing capability with SUSE operating system itself, this is a big big drawback i would say of Azure for SAP environment.

    With lot many customers opting for SAP on Azure, MS must work on fixing its delay on Azure fencing which MS promised one year back as well that they will work.
