Limited preview: New Azure Virtual Machines deliver increased storage throughput for data-intensive workloads
Microsoft is announcing the upcoming preview of Ebs v5 and Ebds v5 Azure VMs, a new memory optimized VM series that delivers up to 300% increase in remote storage performance compared to prior generation VMs. The increased storage throughput is ideal for data-intensive workloads, such as large relational databases, high-performance OLTP scenarios, and data analytics applications.
General availability: New Azure Virtual Machines deliver increased performance for a broad range of workloads
The new Dv5 and Ev5 Azure Virtual Machines feature 3rd Generation Intel® Xeon® Platinum 8370C (Ice Lake) processors and deliver better price-performance compared to prior VM generations. The latest Dasv5 and Easv5 VMs - based on the 3rd Generation AMD EPYCTM 7763v (Milan) processor - now include options without local disk storage for lower-cost entry points. All these new VMs are now generally available and target general-purpose and memory-intensive workloads.
