Recommended Configuration Note
General Purpose DS4v2 Standard / 8 cores Standard: A good starting point with regards to memory and CPU resources.  This category is suited to handle the processing and caching with minimal requirements for network bandwidth.
High DS5v2 Standard / 16 cores Medium: Good for workloads that are read intensive and will benefit from the larger memory-based read cache for this category.  The additional CPU will also provide better performance when deduplication, encryption, compression and/or RAID is enabled.
Extreme DS15v2 / 20 cores High: This category can be used for workloads that require a very high speed network connection due to the amount of data transferred over a network connection.  In addition to the very high speed network, this level of instance gives you a lot more storage, CPU and memory capacity.
Base RAM – General Purpose 28 GB /DS4v2 Standard/Premium Premium or Standard storage
Base RAM – High 56 GB /DS5v2 Standard/Premium Premium or Standard storage
Base RAM – Extreme 140GB / DS15v2 Standard/Premium Local SSD, large-scale use with increased RAM caching, premium or standard storage
Additional RAM 1 GB per 1 TB of deduplicated storage. Recommended for best performance
50 TB deduplicated storage = 50 *additional* GB for deduplication tables for best performance.
Boot Disk 30 GB Hard disk for Linux boot and system disk (included)
Data Disk – General Standard Azure Data Disks (DS Standard Series)
High IOPS Azure Premium Storage (DSv2 Standard Series)
RAID 10 Recommended for I/O-intensive applications and databases
RAID 5/6 Recommended for best space utilization (tradeoff: slower write performance)
Up to 120 MB/sec – 1GbE Less overhead cost
500+ MB/sec – 10 GbE Better performance (requires more resources) Consider MTU 4000 configuration for optimal performance
