New Azure Virtual Machines for general purpose and memory intensive workloads now in preview
Published date: June 15, 2020
The new D v4-series and E v4-series Azure Virtual Machines are based on the Intel® Xeon® Platinum 8272CL custom processor, which can achieve up to 3.4 Ghz all core turbo frequency. These new virtual machines (VMs) don’t provide any temporary storage. If you require temporary storage select the latest Dd v4-series and Ed v4-series VMs, which are now generally available.
The D v4-series and Ds v4-series VM sizes offer a combination of vCPUs and memory able to meet the requirements associated with most general-purpose workloads. You can attach Standard SSDs and Standard HDDs disk storage to the D v4-series virtual machines. If you prefer to use Premium SSD or Azure Ultra Disk Storage, please select the Ds v4-series VMs instead.
The E v4-series and Es v4-series VMs feature up to 504 GiB of RAM and are ideal for various memory-intensive enterprise applications. You can attach Standard SSDs and Standard HDDs disk storage to the E v4 VMs. If you prefer to use Premium SSD or Azure Ultra Disk Storage, please select the Es v4-series virtual machines instead.
