General availability: Azure Premium SSD v2 Disk Storage
Published date: 19 October, 2022
The new Azure Premium SSD v2 Disk Storage is the most advanced general purpose block storage solution available, designed for performance-critical workloads like online transaction processing systems that consistently need sub-millisecond latency combined with high IOPS and throughput.
Premium SSD v2 enables you to improve the price-performance of a broad range of enterprise production workloads that require sub-millisecond latency with high IOPS and throughput such as SQL Server, Oracle® DB, MariaDB, SAP, Cassandra, Mongo DB, big data, analytics, gaming, on virtual machines, or stateful containers.
With Premium SSD v2, you can provision up to 64TiBs, 80,000 IOPS, and 1,200 MB/s throughput on a single disk. You can specify disk size ranging from 1 GiB up to 64 TiBs, in 1-GiB increments. You can provision separately disk size, IOPS, and throughput to match your workload requirements, resulting in greater flexibility when managing performance and costs. Furthermore, you can dynamically scale up or down the performance as needed without downtime, giving you the flexibility to manage disk performance cost-effectively.
In summary, Premium SSD v2 offers the following key benefits:
- Ability to increase disk storage capacity in 1 GiB increments.
- The capability to separately provision IOPS, throughput, and disk storage capacity.
- Consistent sub-millisecond latency.
- Easier maintenance with scaling performance up and down without downtime.
- Up to 64TiBs, 80,000 IOPS and 1200 MB/s on a single disk.
