Announcing general availability of new M-series Msv2/Mdsv2 medium-memory VMs for memory-optimised workloads

Published date: 19 April, 2021

Today, we are announcing the general availability of Msv2/Mdsv2 medium-memory VM sizes, providing a 20% increase in CPU performance, increased flexibility with local disks and a new intermediate scale up-option.

These virtual machines provide unparalleled computational performance to support large in-memory databases and workloads, such as SAP HANA and SQL Hekaton. 

Key features on the new M-series VMs for memory-optimised workloads:

  • Runs on Intel® Xeon® Platinum 8280 (Cascade Lake) processor, offering a 20% performance increase compared to the previous version
  • Available in both disk and diskless offerings, allowing you the flexibility to choose the option that best meets your workload needs
  • New isolated VM sizes with more CPU and memory that go up to 192 vCPU with 4 TiB of memory, so you have an intermediate option to scale up before going to a 416 vCPU VM size
