Azure hardware support
The Vyatta NOS will run on most of the offered Azure machines. The one hardware requirement is that the chosen Azure machine must have support for SSE3.
The machine requirements for this release are detailed in this section.
The F series has been tested, and we note that the Fv2 VMs are currently being recommended by Microsoft as they are both the cheapest and fastest option. We believe that the 8 vCPU option will give the fastest performance for a two interface device. For the target environment, CPU clock speed will have a direct effect on packet throughput and that should be a strong consideration when considering the machine types.
