Custom Intel Xeon Server CPUs Power New Microsoft Azure Virtual Machines

Today at AzureCon, Microsoft announced availability of DV2, the next-generation of D-series virtual machines sizes. DV2 instances are powered by customized 2.4 GHz Intelآ® Xeonآ® E5 v3 processors, and with Intelآ® Turbo Boost Technology 2.0 they can go to 3.2 GHz, making DV2 up to 35 percent faster than the current D-series instances. DV2 and D-series instances are ideal for enterprise-grade applications that demand faster CPUs, better local disk performance or higher memories. DV2 sizes are available for both Virtual Machines and Cloud Services. Check out the Microsoft blog for more information.
