Multipass vs Azure Virtual Machines: What are the differences?

Developers describe Multipass as "Instant Ubuntu VMs". It's a system that orchestrates the creation, management and maintenance of virtual machines and associated Ubuntu images to simplify development. On the other hand, Azure Virtual Machines is detailed as "*It provides on-demand, high-scale, secure, virtualized infrastructure *". You can create Linux and Windows virtual machines. It gives you the flexibility of virtualization for a wide range of computing solutions—development and testing, running applications, and extending your datacenter. It’s the freedom of open-source software configured the way you need it.

Multipass and Azure Virtual Machines can be primarily classified as "Virtual Machine" tools.

Some of the features offered by Multipass are:

  • Ubuntu LTS on tap
  • Up to date
  • Native hypervisor

On the other hand, Azure Virtual Machines provides the following key features:

  • Keep your budget in check with low-cost, per-second billing. You only pay for the compute time you use
  • Scale from one to thousands of VM instances in minutes with VM Scale Sets
  • Encrypt sensitive data, protect VMs from malicious threats, secure network traffic, and meet regulatory and compliance requirements
