Mark Russinovich, CTO of Azure - introduces us to the GS-series VMs in Azure. It combines the compute power of G-series with the performance of Premium Storage to create powerful VMs for your most storage and compute intensive applications.
The GS series is powered by the Intel Xeon E5 v3 family processors, the GS-series can have up to 64TB of storage, provide 80,000 IOPs (storage I/Os per second) and deliver 2,000 MB/s of storage throughput. It offers the highest disk throughput, by more than double, of any VM offered by another hyperscale public cloud provider. Furthermore, both the G-series and GS-series offer up to 20 Gbps of network bandwidth, more than double that of the closest VMs of any hyperscale public cloud provider.
The GS Series machines are available for you to try out TODAY.
