Shared Image Gallery

Shared Image Gallery compliments the Azure Marketplace, allowing captured library images to be shared across regions and subscriptions. These are useful for sharing across your organisation's subscriptions.


  • Shared Image Galleries are containers for one or more image definitions.
  • Image Definitions contain the metadata about images available for distribution.
  • Image Versions are instances of an image, and are the unit users will select.


Images are stored in ZRS volumes for resiliency. Uploaded images should be of the fixed-size Gen 1 VHD format. Gen 2 is supported, albeit with limitations.
