What is given in P3V1 versus S3? RRS feed

  • Question

  • We are hosting our website with an app service plan and are looking into using the premium plan. We are in the north central data center though which has not been upgraded with the V2 of premium which is currently on the pricing page of app service plans. On the price page it tells us that Premium V2 comes with SSDs, higher clocked CPUs, and a higher ratio of memory to CPU cores. I can't seem to find any information on the Premium V1 plans though which is what our data center has as it hasn't been upgraded to Premium V2 yet. So what exactly comes with the Premium V1 plans? Are they more or less the same as standard but with more backup allowances?

  • There are no feature differences between Premium v1 and v2 for all sizes (1-3). The differences there are only for the machine type which it is hosted on Dv2 for the Premium v2, rather than A series for Premium v1.

    The features you get in premium compared with Standard are max scale instances count up to 20 instead of 10, cloning and as you mentioned, more backup options.

    Another option to is move all the resources to a new scale unit which does have Premium v2 in it, then you could enjoy the better machines with Dv2 which will provide better performance. We actually discounted Premium v2 as compared to Premium v1.

  • Hi there,

    The hardware between the a series and Dv2 is definitely not the same. In fact, the original a series has been deprecated and App Service is in the process of moving everything non-premium or Isolated (anything not on Dv2) to the new Av2 series: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/virtual-machines/windows/sizes-general#av2-series

    You may compare that with the Dv2 hardware, but just remember you don't get all the VM options in App Service as you see in the typical VM options: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/virtual-machines/windows/sizes-general#dv2-series

  • Is the hardware the same too then? Does Premium V1 come with SSDs as well as the higher clocked CPUs that is stated on the pricing page for Premium V2
