Network optimized: fast networking with InfiniBand support

Available in select data centers. A8 and A9 virtual machines feature Intel® Xeon® E5 processors. Adds a 32 Gbit/s InfiniBand network with remote direct memory access (RDMA) technology. Ideal for Message Passing Interface (MPI) applications, high-performance clusters, modeling and simulations, video encoding, and other compute or network intensive scenarios.

Compute Intensive

Available in select data centers. A10 and A11 virtual machines feature Intel® Xeon® E5 processors. For high-performance clusters, modeling and simulations, video encoding, and other compute or network intensive scenarios. Similar to A8 and A9 instance configuration without the InfiniBand network and RDMA technology.

Optimized compute: 60% faster than A-series, more memory, and local SSD

D-series virtual machines feature solid state drives (SSDs) and faster processors than the A-series and is also available for web or worker roles in Azure Cloud Services. This series is ideal for applications that demand faster CPUs, better local disk performance, or higher memories.

Optimized 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.
