Tech giant Microsoft Azure are all set to offer VMs (Virtual Machines) with 12 TB memory. With this launch, Microsoft’s Azure cloud computing platform aims to attract developers in a bid to provide them top-notch machines built on the tenets of scale, security and reliability.
According to Microsoft, business-critical applications need a large amount of memory to run smoothly. They also claim that these applications often struggle with scale and put the onus on developers to find solutions.
With the launch of these 12 TB virtual machines, Microsoft will not only be taking the pressure off developers but will also be providing scalable cloud services. They say that Microsoft are also making improvements to the built-in security and management tools in Azure, including disaster recovery for Azure Infrastructure-as-a-Service VMs and backup support for SQL in Azure Virtual Machines.
Speaking about the launch, Corey Sanders, Corporate Vice President at Azure, commented:
For the last few years, Infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS) has been the primary service hosting customer applications. Azure VMs are the easiest to migrate from on-premises while still enabling you to modernize your IT infrastructure, improve efficiency, enhance security, manage apps better and reduce costs.
We are committed to providing the right infrastructure for every workload. Across our 50 Azure regions, you can pick from a broad array of virtual machines with varying CPU, GPU, Memory and disk configurations for your application needs.
