The new G-Series VM’s in Azure are big.. They provide a lot more memory and increased SSD storage than before. They also employ the latest Intel Xeon E5 v3 family of processors for increased performance.
Here are the new G-Series VM sizes:
|Size||Cores||RAM (GB)||SSD Storage (GB)||Persistent Data Disks (Max)|
If you want to play around with these in dev/test, go ahead. But shut them down when you don’t need them to avoid overage charges!
