Proximity Placement Groups and Accelerated Networking

Proximity Placement Group

In this video I go over the benefits of using Azure Proximity Placement Groups and Accelerated networking with Azure IaaS VM’s.  I start by explaining what Proximity Placement Groups are and how they work, then go over the basics of Accelerated Networking.  After that, I deploy a Proximity Placement Group and accelerated networking and compare results with and without the features enabled.
