Azure Dedicated Host is an Azure service that provides physical servers - able to host one or more Azure virtual machines - dedicated to your organization and your workloads. The server capacity is not shared with other customers. As you provision the host, you gain direct visibility and control over the underlying Azure infrastructure. US government entities are eligible to purchase Azure Government services from a licensing solution provider with no upfront financial commitment, or directly through a pay-as-you-go online subscription. An eNF will not be issued.
