End of Dv2-series VMs promotion
The Dv2-series VMs carry more powerful CPUs and the same memory and disk configurations as the D-series.

Improvements to usage meter names
We’ve made improvements to usage meter names in Azure that won’t affect the usage data, rates, or unique identifier, but you’ll need to adjust your reports to accommodate the new names.
By the end of August 2018, improved standardized usage meter names for Azure Virtual Machines will be available. Usage meter name changes for all other services will be effective by the end of October 2018. Download a spreadsheet with all meters and their before and after attribute values. The spreadsheet will be updated monthly until all changes are in production. If you have questions, contact us.
