Memory and storage optimized virtual machines
G-series VMs feature the Intel® Xeon® processor E5 v3 family, two times more memory, and four times more Solid State Drive storage (SSDs) than the General Purpose D-series. G-series features up to ½ TB of RAM and 32 CPU cores, and provide unparalleled computational performance, memory, and local SSD storage for your most demanding applications.
Example use cases include large SQL and NoSQL databases, ERP, SAP, and data warehousing solutions.
GPU enabled virtual machinesThe N-series is a family of Azure Virtual Machines with GPU capabilities. GPUs are ideal for compute and graphics-intensive workloads, helping customers to fuel innovation through scenarios like high-end remote visualization, deep learning, and predictive analytics.
The N-series has three different offerings aimed at specific workloads:
The NC-series is focused on high-performance computing and machine learning workloads. The latest version—NCsv3—features NVIDIA’s Tesla V100 GPU.The NDs-series is focused on training and inference scenarios for deep learning. It uses the NVIDIA Tesla P40 GPUs. The latest version - NDv2 - features the NVIDIA Tesla V100 GPUs.The NV-series enables powerful remote visualization workloads and other graphics-intensive applications backed by the NVIDIA Tesla M60 GPU.NCsv3, NCsv2, NC and NDs VMs offer optional InfiniBand interconnect to enable scale-up performance.
Example use cases include simulation, deep learning, graphics rendering, video editing, gaming and remote visualization.
