(Cloud) Tip of the Day: New F-Series VM Sizes

Today’s (Cloud) Tip…

We have recently announced 10 additional compute optimized VM sizes. This new series of VMs, called the F-Series, are based on the 2.4 GHz Intel Xeon® E5-2673 v3 (Haswell) processor, which can achieve clock speeds as high as 3.1 GHz with the Intel Turbo Boost Technology 2.0. This is the same CPU performance as the Dv2-Series of VMs with 2GB of memory per CPU core at a lower per-hour price. This will put the new F-Series as the best value in a price-performance position in Azure based on the list price of F-Series divided by the Azure Compute Unit (ACU) per core. More information on ACU can be found here.
