Deprecation of Python & R language extensions on VM sizes that don’t support Nested Virtualization

We are stopping the support of Python and R plugins on VM sizes that don’t support Nested Virtualization.

If you do not use language extensions you can ignore this change.


Required Change

To ensure continuity in running KQL with inline Python/R, migrate your cluster to VM Sizes supporting nested virtualization. Migrating your cluster to a compatible VM size is expected to improve the overall cluster performance as well as enabling the update of the Python image from the old Python 3.6.5 to the latest Python 3.10.8.


Schedule & plan 

This change is planned to take place at the end of August 2024.
