How to create GPU VM?

Occasional Visitor

So we need to setup a gpu wvm in Azure. Its purpose is to run Adobe CC( premiere pro, after effects, audition) for one user(me) and maybe another vm for another person. We have the Adobe teams licensing so that part is covered. We also are a nonprofit with Microsoft 365 with $3500 Azure credits.

When I was researching, I ran into a couple of concepts that kinda makes sense but I do not know how to go about it.


  1. Azure Storage to create "permanent" premium ssd for vm

  2. Windows 10 Enterprise Licensing

  3. Region with the most cost effective GPU- I don't want to use up the $3500 in 2 months.


If there is anything else I am missing please let me know. Any thorough instructions and tip are welcomed.

1. I suggest using Managed Disks when you create the VM:,
2. Windows License is paid as part of the VM cost, windows client support is for dev/test scenarios only.
3. Found this site: that gives you best price for an specific VM SKU Size. Not official so please check/confirm in the official pricing list:
