Channel9 : Microsoft’s Largest Cloud VMs – Azure GS Series

From Channel 9 : “The GS series is powered by the Intel Xeon E5 v3 family processors, the GS-series can have up to 64TB of storage, provide 80,000 IOPs (storage I/Os per second) and deliver 2,000 MB/s of storage throughput. It offers the highest disk throughput, by more than double, of any VM offered by another hyperscale public cloud provider. Furthermore, both the G-series and GS-series offer up to 20 Gbps of network bandwidth, more than double that of the closest VMs of any hyperscale public cloud provider.”
