Just Announced: Price reductions on L Series and announcing next generation Hyper-threaded virtual machines
Good afternoon everyone!
I just learned we have some promo pricing for VM’s in Azure you may have noticed in your partner center. You can read the announcement here:
From the article:
In the next few months, Microsoft will be introducing a new generation of Hyper-Threading Technology virtual machines for general purpose workloads, Dv3, and a new family for memory optimized workloads, Ev3. This shift from physical cores to virtual cores is a key architectural change in our VMs that enables us to unlock the full potential of the latest processors. This new generation will introduce sizes with 64 vCPUs on Intel® Broadwell E5-2673 v4 2.3 processor and with 432 GiB of memory on the largest Ev3 sizes. By unlocking more power from the underlying hardware, we are able to harness better performance and efficiency, resulting in cost savings that we are passing on to our customers….
This promotion will be available until the launch of the Dv3 and Ev3 VMs later this year. We encourage you to deploy the Dv2 Promo VMs using Azure Resource Manager to simplify migration to the new VMs in the future.
