Deploying Batch Services On Azure Portal


In this article, I am going to describe what Batch Services are and how to deploy them on the Azure Portal.

What is Batch Service in Azure?

Batch Services is a set of services that are pre-defined to work in a manner that allows us to work with a lot of systems easily. Batch is a managed Azure Service that is used for batch processing or batch computing, running a large volume of similar tasks for a desired result. Batch computing is most commonly used by organizations which regularly process, transform, and analyze large volumes of data.
There are two types of allocation modes available in Batch Services:
  • Batch Service
  • User Subscription

Follow these steps to create a Batch account.

Sign into Azure Portal.

Choose the "+" sign from the Dashboard and press "Compute". Then, scroll down and select the Batch Service.


In the "New Batch Account Creation" blade, enter the required details like Account Name, Subscription, Resourse group etc.


For a Batch service, we need to create a Storage account. If you already have one, use that or create a new one. Click Storage account and choose "Create New". In the "Create Storage Account" section, enter the name for the account, leave the performance on Standard, choose Replication to be in LocallyRedundant Storage (LRS), and press OK.

After that, choose the Pool Allocation method in the Batch Service and choose to pin your batch on the dashboard. Then, select "Create" to create the Batch Service with Storage account.


After the success notification, it automatically opens the Batch Service. In Overview, it shows the details about our Batch Services.


Under Settings, choose Properties. It shows our property of the Batch Services that we created in it.


In Quotas, it shows what the quotas are and the limits that we obtained for our Batch Service.


Next, the storage account shows our storage that we created when our Batch was created.



I hope you understood how to create the Batch Service on the Azure portal.
