Optimized for in-memory hyper-threaded applications
The E-series Azure virtual machines are optimized for heavy in-memory applications such as SAP HANA. These VMs are configured with high memory-to-core ratios, which makes them well-suited for relational database servers, with medium to large caches, and in-memory analytics. The Ev3-series VMs range from 2 to 64 vCPUs and 16-432 GiB of RAM, respectively.
The Ea_v4 and Eas_v4 Azure VM-series feature AMD’s EPYC™ 7452 processor and also provide up to 96 vCPUs, 672 GiBs of RAM and 2,400 GiBs of SSD-based temporary storage.
The Es and the Eas VM series both support Azure Premium SSDs.
Example use cases include SAP HANA, SAP S/4 HANA, SQL Hekaton and other large in-memory business critical workloads.
