The Azure Update Management service isincluded as part of an Azure Subscription. Update management allows you to manage updates and patches for your machines. With Update management, you can quickly assess the status of available updates, schedule installation of required updates, and review deployment results to verify updates that apply successfully. This is possible whether your machines are Azure VMs, hosted by other cloud providers, or on premise.
To use Update Management, you will need to take care of a few prerequisites. If you already have an Azure VM, this process is simple.
