Before resizing the VM in Azure, 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 - https://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 https://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 as per your requirement and then select Resize
Verify the size
Open the VM and check the Size
Done. Our VM size is increased to Standard B2ms and got 8 GiB memory
Note: If the virtual machine is currently running, changing its size will cause it to be restarted.
If our VM is still running and we don't see the size we want in the list, stopping the virtual machine may reveal more sizes.
