This is an extension to azure cli that allows copying virtual machine images between regions with just one command.
The extension simplifies the process and also enables you to save time by copying to multiple regions in parallel. This is now becoming a question I am getting a lot from UK Academics who now wish to move existing Azure resources to the

How to use
Step1. You need Azure Command Line Interface Installed
One thing you should keep in mind is that we are relying on the source os disk as the actual source for the copy. So, when you "capture" a new image off a vm in Azure, don't delete the os disk if your intention is to copy it to other regions.
Other options and examples of using the extensions can be viewed with the help command:
