Dynamics 365 for Finance and Operations Managed Premium Disks

Recently, there has been a change with regards to Dynamics 365 for Finance and Operations Development and Test environments for better performance.

What’s the change?

Development and test environments (Functional test or Gold configuration, classified in the category Develop and Test in Lifecycle Services), can now be provisioned to use the DS12V2.

This is required because of the extensive tests and code that we are running on our development and test machines. Refer to the link below that provides more insights about this capability.
