Resilience 130fb88f-0fc9-4678-bfe1-31022d71c7d5 [Preview]: Resources should be Zone Resilient Some resource types can be deployed Zone Redundant (e.g. SQL Databases); some can be deploy Zone Aligned (e.g. Virtual Machines); and some can be deployed either Zone Aligned or Zone Redundant (e.g. Virtual Machine Scale Sets). Being zone aligned does not guarantee resilience, but it is the foundation on which a resilient solution can be built (e.g. three Virtual Machine Scale Sets zone aligned to three different zones in the same region with a load balancer).
