We are happy to announce the general availability of DSv2-Series and Fs-Series (not to be confused with F-series) virtual machines in US Gov Virginia.

DSv2-series and Fs-series VMs can use Premium Storage, which provides high-performance, low-latency storage for Input/Output intensive workloads. These VMs use solid-state drives (SSDs) to host a virtual machine’s disks and also provide a local SSD disk cache.

For customers already utilizing DS-Series VMs in US Gov Virginia, DSv2 offers similar memory and disk, but offers more powerful CPUs which are based on 2.4 GHz Intel Xeon E5-2673 v3 (Haswell) processors and run about 35 percent faster

Below are the CPU, memory, and disk configuration options for DSv2 instances:

SizeCPU coresMemory: GiBLocal SSD: GiBMax data disks
Standard_DS1_v213.572
Standard_DS2_v227144
Standard_DS3_v2414288
Standard_DS4_v28285616
Standard_DS5_v2165611232
Standard_DS11_v2214284
Standard_DS12_v2428568
Standard_DS13_v285611216
Standard_DS14_v21611222432
Standard_DS15_v22014028040

 

Fs-Series VMs have similar CPU and memory configurations as F-Series but also have the ability to utilize SSDs.

Below are the CPU, memory, and disk configuration options for Fs instances:

SizeCPU coresMemory: GiBLocal SSD: GiBMax data disks
Standard_F1s1242
Standard_F2s2484
Standard_F4s48168
Standard_F8s8163216
Standard_F16s16326432

 

DSv2 and FS VM sizes will also be available in US Gov Arizona and US Gov Texas regions at launch. To see VM sizes available in each Azure Government region please visit our compute documentation page.
