Hi,

Does anyone know why the older d3 series supports more NiCs then the newer D4_v3.

We wanted to resize to d4_v3but can't due to the limit on NICs which makes no sense surely the d4 should be better then the d3_v2

    Hi

    I'am not an expert into the subject for VM, but the spec even if less NIC offer the same total throughput.

    If you really need 4 NIC you would need a D8v3.

    See the attached images;
