In this lab we will walk through the steps on how to add data disks to your existing Virtual Machine.
Duration: 60 minutes
A virtual machine (VM) is a virtual environment that functions as a virtual computer system with its own CPU, memory, network interface, and storage, created on a physical hardware system (located off- or on-premises).
VMs allow multiple different operating systems to run simultaneously on a single computer
A VM provides an environment that is isolated from the rest of a system, so whatever is running inside a VM won’t interfere with anything else running on the host hardware.
A data disk is a managed disk that's attached to a virtual machine to store application data, or other data you need to keep.
The data-disk provides more disk space, while the size of the root-disk is fixed (and some of them are already taken by the OS).
When your application and data grow and need more space, you can just upgrade the plan, and the data-disk space (where your application and data are located) will be upgraded.
