Questions and Answers about Azure/Azure Weekly Update

How and when are OS updates applied? Azure manages OS patching on two levels, the physical servers and the guest virtual machines (VMs) that run the App Service resources. Both are updated monthly, which aligns to the monthly Patch Tuesday schedule.

Sign in to the Azure portal. Navigate to Virtual Machines and select your virtual machine from the list. From the left menu, under Operations, select Updates, and select Go to Update Management.

However, seeing as Microsoft Azure's market share has doubled in the last five years, it is conceivable that Azure will surpass AWS in 2023 – at least in some areas. Microsoft continues to make Azure a more attractive cloud solution to businesses using its decades-long market expertise.

Considering this event that happened today with Microsoft: Azure Active Directory has an SLA of 99.9%. It means that they guarantee that the most amount of time it will be down on a year is 8.77 hours or 43.83 minutes per month.
