Offer vCPU constrained AMD EPYC VMs
Currently vCPU constrained VMs are only available on Intel technology. A VM like "E16a-8s_v4" would be ideal for medium-sized SQL Server platforms.
Thanks for the valid suggestion. Your feedback is now open for the user community to upvote which allows us to effectively prioritize your request against our existing feature backlog and also gives us insight into the potential impact of implementing the suggested feature.

We would like the opportunity to offer 12 / 24 core VMs (currently not an option) to our customer partners. Currently, we're limited and it is a dissatisfier to our clients.

In our use case, we could particularly make use of a 12 and 24 core option for SQL Server. We would likely use the E48-12as and E96-24as for our specific purpose.
We go to higher SKUs because of the memory ratio and IO requirements.
