Monthly updates for Virtual Machines: June 2020
You now have the ability to store ephemeral OS disks on the VM temp or resource disk in addition to the VM cache (in preview).
High-performance computing (HPC) organizations typically calculate cost projections five-to-six years for the typical lifespan of an on-premises HPC cluster.
Azure Monitor for Virtual Machines is now available in preview in US Gov Arizona. It's also available in an additional eighteen public regions around the world.
HBv2-series VMs for HPC now available in the Japan East region.
The new D v4-series and E v4-series Azure Virtual Machines feature the Intel® Xeon® Platinum 8272CL custom processor, which can achieve up to 3.4 Ghz all core turbo frequency. The D v4-series and E v4-series virtual machines (VMs) don’t provide any temporary storage. The D v4-series and Ds v4-series virtual machine sizes can meet the requirements associated with most general-purpose workloads. The E v4-series and Es v4-series VMs offer up to 504 GiB of RAM and are ideal for various memory-intensive enterprise applications.
HBv2-series VMs for HPC now available in the West US 2 region.
The new Dd v4-series and Ed v4-series Azure Virtual Machines feature the Intel® Xeon® Platinum 8272CL custom processor. The Dd v4-series and Dds v4 virtual machine (VM) sizes are well suited for applications that benefit from low latency, high-speed local storage (up to 2,400 GiB.) The Edv4-series and Edsv4-series VM sizes are ideal for various memory-intensive enterprise applications and feature up to 504 GiB of RAM, in addition to high-performance local SSD storage (up to 2,400 GiB.)
Deploy M-series, NV v3-series and NV v4-series Azure Virtual Machines on Azure Dedicated Hosts. This will expand the range of workloads you can run on Dedicated Hosts to include memory-intensive and graphics-intensive applications.
