  6. 6. Questions here
  7. 7. Agenda - Azure Update - Azure Virtual Machines - Q & A
  8. 8. News • Improvements to Azure Advisor • • Manage Windows 10 devices via PowerShell and Intune • powershell-and-microsoft-intune/ • Azure Cost Management (Cloudyn) • • Keep me sign in experience - • keep-me-signed-in-experiences-rolling-out-now/ • Azure Backup includes system state - •
  9. 9. Introduction to Azure Virtual Machines (VMs)
  10. 10. The following elements go into the pricing calculation: • Instance size (CPU cores, RAM, etc.) • OS/app type (Windows, Linux, Oracle, SQL Server) • Pricing tier (tied to instance size) • Number of VMs you need • Number of running hours (744/hrs - Always on)
  11. 11. A Series - Basic An economical option for development workloads, test servers, and other applications that don't require load balancing, auto-scaling, or memory-intensive virtual machines A Series – Standard Offers the most flexibility. Supports all virtual machine configurations and features including load balancing and auto-scaling
  12. 12. D Series Feature SSDs and 60% faster processors than the A-series. Ideal for apps that need faster CPUs, better disk performance, or higher RAM
  13. 13. DV2 Series Optimized Compute: 35% faster than D series, latest generation of CPU
  14. 14. F-Series • 2GB RAM and 16 GB of local solid state drive (SSD) per CPU core. • Optimized for compute intensive workloads. • Suitable for scenarios like batch processing, web servers, analytics and gaming.
  15. 15. G Series Featuring the latest Intel Xeon processors, twice the memory and four times the Solid State Storage of the Dv2 builds which makes this tier the ideal choice for your most demanding applications.
  16. 16. H Series Specifically designed to handle high performance computing workloads such as financial risk modeling, seismic and reservoir simulation, molecular modeling and genomic research.
  17. 17. N Series N-Series instances are enabled with NVIDIA’s cutting edge GPUs to allow you to run GPU- accelerated workloads and visualize them.
  18. 18. Azure Premium Storage Comes with specially designed virtual machines that use new caching technologies to provide extremely low latency read operations to further enhance performance. For time-critical applications, you can attach multiple persistent disks to deliver up to 64TB of storage and more than 80,000 I/O operations per second
  19. 19. VM storage
  20. 20. DEMO
  21. 21. Take aways • Wide variety of machine type available • Machines arranged by ‘family’ • Can deploy from console or via script • Cost based on compute and storage • Upgrading within VM family easy • D: drive should not be used for data. • All static network configurations should be done in Azure
  22. 22. Resources • Sizes in Azure VMs - machines/virtual-machines-windows-sizes • Create a VM running Windows - us/documentation/articles/virtual-machines-windows-tutorial/ • Create a VM using PowerShell - us/azure/virtual-machines/virtual-machines-windows-ps-create • Virtual disks - machines-windows-about-disks-vhds
