Microsoft has unveiled the UK’s most powerful cloud services. In a post on its website, Microsoft says, “The M-Series virtual machines (VMs) in Azure can handle very large workloads that involve a lot of data. Microsoft is currently the only company to offer this level of cloud computing power in this country.”
The M-Series of Azure virtual machines are the largest-memory optimised VMs to date. Ideal for heavy in-memory workloads such as SAP HANA, the M-series offers the largest available memory capacities starting from 1 TiB of RAM on a single VM. Additionally they offer the highest virtual CPU count of up to 128 vCPUs on a single VM to enable high-performance parallel processing.
