Azure – VIP Reservation

A virtual IP address (VIP) can be reserved in Azure to a virtual Maschine and cloud service web/worker roles.

At the Moment you can reserve 20 Public IPs to a Subscription. If you need more, you must request additional.

The Cost you can see under: http://azure.microsoft.com/en-us/pricing/details/ip-addresses/

At this time you need the PowerShell to reserve a IP adress to a Cloud Service.

Here the commands you Need:

New-AzureReservedIP –ReservedIPName “ReservedIPName” –Label “ReservedLabel” –Location “Location”

Other commands like „Get-AzureReservedIP“ you can see with „get-help *-AzureReservedIP*“

Note: You can´t go back and apply a Reservation to a cloud Service that was already created.
