View Subscription Usage and Quotas in Microsoft Azure Cloud
by BF (Principal Consultant; Architecture; Engineering)

Microsoft Azure Cloud can have default limits set on it's services. These services & limits are being updated over time. If you need to
raise a limit above your current set level, open a new support request in the Azure Portal and Microsoft will adjust it - typically
within 1 day. In the new ARM Portal (i.e. Resource Groups), limits become set & managed at a Regional level. An example of a Region
is East US 2.

i.e. as per Microsoft:

" If you need to request a quota increase with support for cores, you need to decide how many cores you want to use in which regions,
and then make a specific request for Azure Resource Group core quotas for the amounts and regions that you want. Therefore, if you
need to use 30 cores in West Europe to run your application there; you should specifically request 30 cores in West Europe. But you
will not have a core quota increase in any other region -- only West Europe will have the 30-core quota.

As a result, you may find it useful to consider deciding what your Azure Resource Group quotas need to be for your workload in any
one region, and request that amount in each region into which you are considering deployment."

Ex. Powershell to check on VM limits:


Select-AzureRmSubscription -SubscriptionName "InsertSubscriptionNameHere"

Get-AzureRmVMUsage -Location "East US 2"

In the new portal, there is a method currently in development to view your Subscription Usage & Quotas:
