Supported virtual machine types

Supported VM sizes for backends

On Azure, WEKA is deployed in a multiple containers architecture using the storage optimized Lsv3-series of Azure Virtual Machines (Azure VMs), which features high throughput, low latency, and directly mapped local NVMe storage.

Each virtual machine size has a specific number of NICs, but only one is used for UDP mode connection for all traffic through the management interface.

The following table provides the virtual machine sizes (Lsv3 series) that are applied by the Terraform package with their specifications:

Using the Azure Console, the client instances can have different virtual machine types provisioned separately from the WEKA cluster.

Mapped cores to processes

In each virtual machine size, the cores are mapped to a specific number of the compute, drive, and frontend processes. For example, in the Standard_L16s_v3 size, the cores are mapped to the following processes:

  • Compute: 4

  • Drive: 2

  • Frontend: 1
