Earlier this year, Microsoft announced a public preview of new Mv3 Medium Memory Virtual Machines, powered by 4th Gen Intel Xeon Scalable processors.
The Mv3 MM (Medium Memory) series virtual machines, with Microsoft Azure Boost, aims to provide a 25 percent improvement in network throughput and up to 1.5x improvement in remote storage throughput over the previous M-series families. It also provides enhanced security by running storage and networking services separately from the host.
Additionally, Mv3 instances provide improved uptime through zonal resilience, lower TCO and notably an increased selection of SAP Certified VMs up to 32TB to enable customers to ‘Right Size’ their memory capacity for HANA database requirements. With both disk and diskless options, it allows customers to further right-size their infrastructure and only pay for the local storage they need.
Protecting Data in Use:
The Azure confidential computing portfolio will be expanding with new DCesv5 series and the ECesv5 series VMs coming soon. Featuring 4th Gen Intel Xeon Scalable processors, these VMs are backed by Intel Trust Domain Extensions (Intel TDX), enabling the latest Intel hardware-based Trusted Execution Environment.
Organizations can use these VMs to move confidential workloads to the cloud without needing to make code changes to their applications to protect and encrypt data in memory while in-use.
