Startup times for VMs continues to be a focus in Azure. I am leaving this item in the “Started” state because we still have work to be done, but the current deployment time we are seeing for Windows Server on average is 2 minutes (1 minute for Linux). We’ll continue to invest resources in driving down this number.Anonymous commented
I have the same problem with NV12_v3 instances.
Boot time is about 13 minutes.
In AWS & GCP, it is less than 2 minutes.
The boot time is a very big deal for my company business.
Any news ?
