B-Series Azure VM’s Now Available

AzureVMI took some time off to chase fish on Lake Minnetonka this week and missed Microsoft’s announcement of Azure B-Series are now in preview.  The fish were not cooperating so I’m posting about Azure instead.  The B-Series VM significance is  their ability to “bank” CPU credits during time of low CPU usage and to use these credits during CPU spikes.  This will be helpful for test servers that may be idle during off hours or applications servers that have bursty work loads.  Any opportunity to save money without impacting performance is good news to my ears.

Next, maybe dynamic RAM allocation???
