Microsoft announces preview of burstable VM series

Microsoft has announced the public preview of its new Azure VM family – the B-series, which will offer cost efficiency and burstability to workloads that are running in Azure. These VMs are best suited for workloads that do not need a continuous CPU performance like web servers, small databases and development/test environments. The B-series VMs are designed to optimize performance during less workload, and burst capacity during increased workloads. The concept is quite similar to what AWS and Google have been offering through T2 instances and f1-micro and g1 small instances, respectively. During less workloads, the B-series VMs will run in low points without utilizing the full capacity of the CPU. However, the user will pay for the full CPU only. Once the VM accumulates enough credits, it...
