Differences between GA, Private and Public Preview on Azure Services and Features

  • Each Azure Service and Feature is on Public or Private Preview under specific terms and conditions.
  • In most cases, Private Preview does not offer Support and the Public Preview offers limited support.
  • Sometimes a service/feature might not respect the roadmap and additional work is required. At that moment in time, it would not go in GA or can be even replaced by another service/feature.
