Generally available: 8TB memory Mv2 Virtual Machine

Published date: June 01, 2023

Mv2 High Memory virtual machines serve our largest in-memory workloads providing infrastructure for 6 and 12TB memory needs. Based on customer demand, we are expanding the Mv2 portfolio and adding an 8TB memory virtual machine (VM) Standard_M416ms_8_v2, that offers an intermediate size to scale between 6TB and 12TB. Standard_M416ms_8_v2 is now generally available.

SAP Certification

Standard_M416ms_8_v2 inherits all certifications of 12TB Mv2 including OLAP scale-out, OLTP scale-out, OLAP scale-up, and OLTP scale-up.

Additionally, to provide extra headroom for large SAP HANA scale-out OLAP systems, we have completed a workload-based sizing certification for our 12TB, Standard_M416ms_v2 VM. The certification enables our customers to scale out to 16 x 8TB memory or 128TB. We are positioning this VM as an option for customers that outgrow the smaller 6TB, M416s_v2 VM type, and where the demand for memory is the main scale driver for many customers. This represents an excellent opportunity to expand their SAP HANA scale-out cluster without the need of repartitioning and rebalancing the data when adding additional nodes.
