Deploy your own dedicated servers in the cloud with Azure Dedicated Host. Run apps and services just as you would on premises, but with the added flexibility and operational savings that come with running your workloads in Azure.

An Azure Dedicated Host is dedicated to your organization and only hosts your workloads. Azure VMs run on virtualized hardware on top of a host hypervisor, and you can fill your dedicated host with different VM sizes until you run out of space.

Azure expert, Matt McSpirit, shows how to set up and manage Azure Dedicated Host.
