Published date: March 22, 2024

Standard_M192ims_v2 will be retired on 31 March 2027, please transition to Standard_M176s_4_v3 by that date.   


Isolated size VMs live and operate on a specific hardware generation for which they were designed. The hardware upon which the Standard_M192ims_v2 VM runs has been replaced by a new generation. As a result, we can no longer offer this product. We encourage you to transition to Standard_M176s_4_v3 prior to the retirement date to experience the new capabilities including improved performance and reliability. The Msv3 and Mdsv3 Medium Memory (MM) series, powered by 4th generation Intel® Xeon® Scalable processors, are the next generation of memory optimized VM sizes delivering faster performance, lower total cost of ownership and improved resilience to failures compared to previous generation Mv2 VMs. 
From now to 31 March 2027, you can continue to use Standard_M192ims_v2 without disruption. On 31 March 2027—workloads running Standard_M192ims_v2 will be deleted and associated application data will be lost. Resources to aid in your migration can be found below.
