Generally Available: New burstable SKUs for Azure Database for PostgreSQL - Flexible Server
Published date: April 12, 2023
Azure Database for PostgreSQL - Flexible Server now offers five new burstable SKUs (B4ms, B8ms, B12ms, B16ms, B20ms) that provides a low-cost solution for flexible CPU usage to accommodate workloads with fluctuating usage patterns. These SKUs are particularly useful for small database workloads that require minimal CPU performance for extended periods but may require full CPU power due to incoming traffic or workload requirements. New burstable series SKUs provide a cost-effective deployment solution for such workloads that experience periodic bursts in performance rather than continuous maximum CPU performance. This approach can help save costs while meeting the demands of unpredictable workloads.
