Network-optimised: fast networking with InfiniBand support

Available in selected data centres. A8 and A9 virtual machines feature Intel® Xeon® E5 processors. Adds a 32 Gbit/s InfiniBand network with remote direct memory access (RDMA) technology. Ideal for Message Passing Interface (MPI) applications, high-performance clusters, modelling and simulations, video encoding and other compute or network-intensive scenarios.

The H series is a new family specifically designed to handle high-performance computing workloads such as financial risk modelling, seismic and reservoir simulation, molecular modelling and genomic research. They are based on the Intel Xeon E5-2667 v3 Haswell 3.2 GHz (3.6 GHz with turbo) with DDR 4 memory. Turbo is always on for H-series instances. Two of the H-series configurations (H16r and H16mr) also carry a second low latency, high-throughput network interface (RDMA) optimised and tuned for tightly coupled parallel computing workloads such as MPI applications.

Optimised compute: 35% faster than D-series, latest generation of CPU

Dv2-series instances are the next generation of D-series instances that can be used as Virtual Machines or Cloud Services. Dv2-series instances will carry more powerful CPUs which are on average about 35% faster than D-series instances, and carry the same memory and disk configurations as the D-series. Dv2-series instances are based on the latest-generation 2.4 GHz Intel Xeon® E5-2673 v3 (Haswell) processor and, with Intel Turbo Boost Technology 2.0, can run at up to 3.2 GHz. Dv2-series and D-series are ideal for applications that demand faster CPUs, better local disk performance or higher memories and offer a powerful combination for many enterprise-grade applications.
