Microsoft Azure is set to offer 12TB virtual machines

June 5, 2018


Microsoft Azure is soon to offer virtual machines with 12TB of RAM for developers looking to run workloads that require lots of memory.

The company made the announcement along with the launch of a number of other VM types that are specifically geared towards running high-memory workloads, such as those running in SAP’s HANA in-memory database service, that need to process huge chunks of data extremely quickly.

Along with the new 12TB VM, Microsoft now also offers a newer M-series range of VMs stretching between 192GB and 4TB capacities certified for HANA, with Microsoft pushing its cloud infrastructure as the ideal place to run your SAP workloads. They are all based on Intel Xeon Scalable (Skylake) processors.
