Published date: 16 November, 2022
In September, we announced the general availability of the new general-purpose Dpsv5 and Dplsv5 and memory optimized Epsv5 Azure Virtual Machine series, built on the Ampere Altra Arm-based processor.
The Dpsv5, Dplsv5, and Epsv5 VMs are now available in the following additional four Azure regions: West US, North Central US, UK South, and France Central. As a result, the new VMs are now available in 15 Azure regions. The VMs are also now available zonally in the following regions: West US 2, East US, Central US, West Europe, North Europe, and Australia East.
Arm-based virtual machines can be included in Kubernetes clusters managed using Azure Kubernetes Service (AKS). Azure Arm-based VMs offer outstanding price-performance and power-efficiency and have been engineered to efficiently run scale-out, cloud-native workloads, open-source databases, web and application servers, and more. Azure Arm-based VMs also support Windows 11 Professional and Enterprise Insider Preview builds to help customers build Arm-based client applications faster and cost effectively.
