CDP provisions VMs as part of the environment creation process (for Data Lake and FreeIPA) and for compute clusters.

Therefore, you should verify the limits on the number and type of VM instances in your Azure account to ensure that you are able to provision an environment and create clusters in CDP.

CDP provides default Virtual Hard Drives (VHDs) and provisions managed images based on these VHDs. These managed images are used for Data Lake, FreeIPA, and compute cluster instances.
