General purpose

Balanced CPU-to-memory ratio. Ideal for testing and development, small to medium databases, and low to medium traffic web servers.

Bs-series

Bs-series are economical virtual machines that provide a low-cost option for workloads that typically run at a low to moderate baseline CPU performance, but sometimes need to burst to significantly higher CPU performance when the demand rises. These workloads don’t require the use of the full CPU all the time, but occasionally will need to burst to finish some tasks more quickly. Many applications such as development and test servers, low-traffic web servers, small databases, micro services, servers for proof-of-concepts, build servers and code repositories fit into this model.

Av2 Standard

Av2 Standard is the latest generation of A-series virtual machines with similar CPU performance and faster disk. These virtual machines are suitable for development workloads, build servers, code repositories, low-traffic websites and web applications, micro services, early product experiments and small databases. Like the prior A Standard generation, Av2 virtual machines will include load balancing and auto-scaling at no additional charge.

Reserved Virtual Machine Instances are currently not available for the Av2-series.

D2as – D96as v5 (latest generation without local temporary storage)

The Das v5-series virtual machines are based on the 3rd Generation AMD EPYCTM 7763v (Milan) processor. This processor has base frequency of 2.55 GHz and can achieve up to 3.7 GHz. The Das v5 VM sizes offer a combination of vCPUs and memory able to meet the requirements associated with most production workloads.

The Das v5 virtual machine sizes do not have any temporary storage thus lowering the price of entry. You can attach Standard SSDs, Standard HDDs and Premium SSDs disk storage to these VMs. You can also attach Ultra Disk storage based on its regional availability. Disk storage is billed separately from virtual machines. See pricing for disks.

Prices displayed in the table below may increase starting 1 December 2021 to reflect general availability pricing.
