Microsoft bulks up Azure virtual machines

Responding to customer hunger for bigger virtual machines, Microsoft has bulked up its most powerful VM with more storage and higher throughput, paving the way for running large-scale, database-driven applications in the Microsoft Azure cloud.

The newly launched GS-Series is based on the G-series of VMs, which proved to be surprisingly popular since they were launched in January, said Corey Sanders, Microsoft Azure director program management. Usage of this VM has doubled by 50 percent in the last three months, he said.

The G series, which runs on the Intel Xeon E5 v3 processors, is the most powerful VM offered on Azure. Customers use the G-series to run databases — including Microsoft SQL Server and MySQL, and even NoSQL databases such as MongoDB — that power internal and public-facing applications, as well as serve as the cornerstone for data warehouse-style data analysis, Sanders said.
