Do you might have an utility that wants numerous reminiscence? Possibly as a lot as 12 terabytes of reminiscence? Nicely, you’re in luck as a result of Microsoft Azure will quickly provide digital machines with simply that a lot RAM, primarily based on Intel’s Xeon Scalable servers.
The corporate made this announcement in live performance with the launch of quite a lot of different digital machine (VM) varieties which are particularly geared towards operating high-memory workloads — and the usual use instances for that is operating the SAP Hana in-memory database service.
So along with this huge new 12 TB VM, Microsoft can also be launching a brand new 192 GB machine that extends the decrease finish of Hana-optimized machines on Azure, in addition to a quantity different Hana choices that scale throughout a number of VMs and might provide mixed reminiscence sizes of as much as 18 TB.
One other new characteristic of Azure launching at the moment is Requirements SSDs. These will provide Azure customers a brand new possibility for operating entry-level manufacturing workloads that require constant disk efficiency and throughput with out the total worth of what at the moment are referred to as “premium SSD.” The Commonplace SSDs received’t provide the identical form of efficiency, although, however Microsoft guarantees that builders will nonetheless get improved latency, reliability and scalability as in comparison with normal laborious disks in its cloud.
