Microsoft’s unleashing what it believes is the UK’s “most powerful cloud services” – the M-Series virtual machines in Azure.With the ability to support up to 128 virtual central processing units (vCPU) and between one and 3.8 tebibytes of RAM, which is equal to 1,024 gigabytes, on a single VM, the M-Series should be able to handle most workloads. The Redmond company has been keen to play up that the latest offering, which provides up to 20 terabytes of memory, is the most powerful of its type in the UK, even going so far as to promote the VMs as the only one capable of handling certain large workloads – such as those on SAP HANA.
