Accelerated Networking for both Windows and Linux is now generally available in Azure Government

Mike K

We are happy to announce that Accelerated Networking (AN) for both Windows and Linux is now generally available in Azure Government.

Accelerated networking provides consistent ultra-low network latency via Azure’s in-house programmable hardware and technologies such as SR-IOV. By moving much of Azure’s software-defined networking stack off the CPUs and into FPGA-based SmartNICs, compute cycles are reclaimed by end user applications, putting less load on the virtual machine (VM), decreasing jitter and inconsistency in latency.

Information needed to deploy a VM with accelerated networking can be found here: Windows AN VM or Linux AN VM
