Microsoft beefs up Azure with G-Series VMs, Docker & Key Vault


As far as virtual machines in the public cloud go, bigger is better. At least that’s what Microsoft seems to believe in any case, if its new Azure G-Series VMs are anything to go by. Rolled out on Thursday, the G-Series packs more memory, processing power and local solid-state drive storage than anything Microsoft’s competitors can offer.

Of course it’s only natural that as computing power increases over time, new virtual machines will come available. Microsoft’sAzure G-Series VMs offer up to 448 GB of memory, 32vCPUs running on Intel’s Xeon E5 v3 chips, and 6.59 TB of SSD storage.

The Azure G-Series should be a great choice for any customer looking to deploy heavy-duty enterprise apps like NoSQL databases or relational databases, said Drew McDaniel, Azure’s Principal Progam Manager, in a blog post.
