Batch pricing

Cloud-scale job scheduling and compute management

Azure Batch provides job scheduling and cluster management, allowing applications or algorithms to run in parallel at scale. Low-priority VMs can reduce the costs of running certain workloads, but they are only suitable for certain types of applications and workloads. Read more about spot virtual machines.

The H-series is a new family specifically designed to handle high performance computing workloads such as financial risk modeling, seismic and reservoir simulation, molecular modeling 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, 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 go 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.
