There is some marketing-speak suggesting that it may be possible ..:
.. but I couldn't find any way to actually do it using control panel.
More specifically, I'd like to improve random read/write performance.
Random read/write benchmark (4K and 4K/QD32 rows) are shown on the screenshot below:
There's such instance as:
15GiB RAM ..
2 x 40 SSD ..
$0.702 per Hour
So to make my question more specific: is there any equivalent for such instance on Azure?
I ended up using ..:
56 GB RAM ..
$1.60 per Hour
.. and creating RamDisk using "ImDisk Toolkit": http://reboot.pro/files/file/284-imdisk-toolkit/
This got me random read/write performance close to what I wanted:
But this was way too much effort and I had to accept "NO" as an answer.
