Azure deploys AMD Epyc processorsErvan
Microsoft has introduced its latest L-Series of Virtual Machines (VM) for storage optimized workloads powered by AMD’s Epyc processor. The Lv2 VM family will take advantage of the high-core count and connectivity support of the AMD processor.
The Lv2-Series instances run on the AMD Epyc 7551 processor, featuring a base core frequency of 2.2 GHz and a maximum single-core turbo frequency of 3.0 GHz. The Lv2-Series instances are based on Microsoft’s Project Olympus design, first introduced just over a year ago as Microsoft’s next generation hyperscale cloud hardware design.
