He has implemented them in his new series of virtual machines for workloads optimized for storage.

AMD has just unveiled the availability of the first public cloud cases driven by the AMD EPYC processor .

The Lv2 VM family of Microsoft Azure virtual machines , which are focused on storage tasks, has become the first in the cloud market to bet on the product developed by AMD.

Specifically, it will take advantage of the high number of cores and the EPYC connectivity support , working on the EPYC 7551 processor, which will allow it to offer a base frequency of 2.2 GHz and a maximum single-core turbo frequency of 3.0 GHz.

Also, from AMD have specified that the Lv2 virtual machines will be available in a range of sizes ranging from 8 to 64 vCPU , where the largest size has direct access to 4TB of memory.

Among the advantages of AMD EPYC are the improvement in connectivity of more than 33% compared to the 2-socket solutions available.

In addition, it promises a perfect fit for intensive storage workloads , being indicated for Azure customers who use large databases and NoSQL databases.
