General purpose compute
D-series VMs feature fast CPUs, and optimal CPU-to-memory configuration making them suitable for most production workloads.
Dv3 virtual machine instances provide hyper-threaded general-purpose VMs and are based on the 2.3 GHz Intel XEON ® E5-2673 v4 (Broadwell) processor. They can achieve 3.5 GHz with Intel Turbo Boost Technology 2.0.
The Da_v4 and Das_v4 Azure VM-series provide up to 96 vCPUs, 384 GiBs of RAM and 2,400 GiBs of SSD-based temporary storage and feature AMD’s EPYC™ 7452 processor.
The Ds-series and the Das-series VMs both support Azure Premium SSDs.
Example use cases include many enterprise-grade applications, relational databases, in-memory caching, and analytics. The latest generations are ideal for applications that demand faster CPUs, better local disk performance or higher memories
