Microsoft has introduced new Dv3 VM’s in Azure with potential cost savings of 28%
Read more about the new exiting possibilities of hyper threading, running Hyper-v in azure etc.
A few months ago Microsoft introduced reduced pricing on Dv2_Promo VM’s at the new cost of Dv3 VM’s.
Snip from the article:
All deployed Dv2_promo VMs will benefit from their promotional pricing until 6/30/2018 at which point prices will revert to match Dv2 pricing.
Meaning if you don’t do anything these Dv2_Promo VM’s will be reverted to the price of Dv2 VM’s and you will loose the cost saving
To get permanent cost savings on Dv2 and Dv2_promo VM’s remember to resize them to the new Dv3 SKU’s.
