GA: Improved throughput performance on Azure Disks’ Standard SSD

Published date: March 28, 2024

We are excited to announce that Standard SSD Disks sizes E50 and below now have increased throughput limits of 100 MB/s. This means Standard SSD Disks sized with 8191 GBs capacity and below now have 100 MB/s, an increase from 60 MB/s. The increased throughput is beneficial for workloads that require higher throughput, such as big data processing, online analytical processing (OLAP), high-performance computing (HPC), and artificial intelligence/machine learning (AI/ML). No additional steps are required to access this enhanced performance, and it's accessible across all regions. The bursting performance for the Standard SSD Disk tiers remains unchanged.
