Managed Azure Virtual Machines

Premium Storage

Premium Storage delivers high-performance, low-latency disk support for I/O intensive workloads running on Azure Virtual Machines. You can attach several Premium Storage disks to a virtual machine (VM). With Premium Storage, your applications can have up to 32 TB of storage per VM and achieve 50,000 IOPS (input/output operations per second) per VM with extremely low latencies for read operations. Premium Storage is currently available only for storing data on disks used by Azure Virtual Machines.

SQL Server on Azure VMs

Using image built by the SQL Server team, you can easily provision a SQL Server in minutes. You can create Virtual Machines using free MSDN licenses for fast Dev/Test or deploy complex production applications spanning multiple Azure regions using SQL AlwaysOn.

SharePoint on Azure VMs

With the SharePoint 2013 pre-created image and the easy-to-use templates available in the marketplace, you can get started with a full functioning SharePoint farm in a matter of minutes.

Open, with options

You can deploy a full range of open and community-driven OS and software solutions on Azure. On Azure, you have the choice of a full range of Linux distributions like Ubuntu and SUSE, community-driven solutions like Chef, Puppet, and Docker along with other products like Oracle Database and Oracle WebLogic Server. Azure is open with lots of options.

Save money and be agile

For fast computational workloads, quick development and testing, or frequent stopping and starting, when deploying Virtual Machines in Azure, you will pay down to the minute. This includes the billing for Windows, Linux, Oracle, SQL Server, and even BizTalk. You can even have the platform AutoScale based upon a schedule or CPU usage of your instances. Our infrastructure and software billing model meets your needs, not ours!

Hybrid connections

With Virtual Networks, you can control and configure all aspects of your network, defining the subnets and the preferred DNS IPs. You can securely connect with your VMs in Azure using a secure VPN over the Internet or bypass the Internet to establish direct connections using ExpressRoute via partners such as AT&T, Level 3, BT, TelecityGroup, Verizon, and Equinix.

New G-Series VMs

You can now deploy the G-series VMs to meet the needs of your workload. With more memory and more local Solid State Drive (SSD) storage than any current VM size in the public cloud, the G-series VMs feature extraordinary performance for your most demanding applications.

True HPC capabilities in the cloud, on demand

The performance and scalability of a world-class supercomputing center is now available to everyone, on demand in the cloud. Run your HPC applications using high performance A8 and A9 compute instances on Azure, and take advantage of a backend network with MPI latency under 3 microseconds and non-blocking 32 Gbps throughput. This backend network includes remote direct memory access (RDMA) technology that enables parallel applications to scale to thousands of cores. Azure provides you with high memory and HPC-class CPU's to help you get results fast. Scale up and down based upon what you need and pay only for what you use to reduce costs.

Get the performance you need

Similar to the A8 and A9 Virtual Machine instances, A10 and A11 instances feature faster processors, more virtual cores for higher compute power, and larger amounts of memory. These instances are carefully configured to achieve the best possible performance when running workloads such as financial modeling, media encoding, video and image rendering, and smaller computer-aided engineering (CAE) models. A10 instances have 8 virtual cores and 56 GB of memory, while A11 instances have 16 virtual cores and 112 GB of memory. They offer more options for customers who do not require the InfiniBand networking capability that comes with the A8 and A9 instances.
