Microsoft offers SAP HANA supportable VMs in UK with the Azure M/B/V3-series

Microsoft becomes the first hyperscale cloud provider to offer SAP HANA supportable VMs in the UK.

Azure Virtual Machines (VMs) customers can now take advantage of the Azure M/V3/B-series of VM sizes available in the UK South region. We’re also excited to announce that Azure is the first hyperscale cloud provider to offer VMs optimized for large in-memory workloads such as SAP HANA in the UK.

New Azure M series – The Azure M-series is perfectly suited for your large in-memory workloads like SAP HANA and SQL Hekaton. With the M-series, these databases can load large datasets into memory and utilize fast memory access with massive virtual CPU (vCPU) parallel processing to speed up queries and enable real-time analytics.

Size vCPU’s Memory (GiB) Local SSD (GiB) Max data disks
M64s 64 1024 2048 32
M64ms 64 1792 2048 32
M128s 128 2048 4096 64
M128ms 128 3800 4096 64

New Azure B series – B-series VMs provide the lowest cost option for customers with flexible vCPU requirements. These are useful for workloads like web servers, small databases, and development or test environments where CPU utilization is low most of the time, but spikes for short durations. B-Series VMs offer consistent baseline CPU performance and let you build up credits which can be used for peak CPU usage. These sizes provide you with optimal cost and value flexibility.

New Azure V3 series – Dv3 and Ev3 VMs are some of the first VMs to enable nested virtualization and Hyper-V containers. These new sizes introduce Hyper-Threading Technology running on the Intel Broadwell E5-2673 v4 2.3GHz processor, and the Intel Haswell 2.4 GHz E5-2673 v3. The shift from physical cores to vCPUs is a key architectural change that will enable the full potential of the latest processors to support even larger virtual machine sizes.
