Smallest subnet possible in Azure

Smallest subnet possible in Azure

Q. What is the smallest subnet that can be used in an Azure virtual subnet?

A. A /29 is the smallest available in Azure which would give 8 IP addresses. However, considering a minimum of 4 are used for Azure purposes that only leaves 4 usable - which is why any smaller subnet would be of no value since no addresses would be available for use. This is confirmed at Since the address space you use in an Azure virtual network can really be anything you want there should not be a problem in having subnets of at least this size and still not run out of IP addresses.
