Changing the Performance of Azure Premium SSDs without downtime

Hey everyone, in this blog post I’m going to show you how to change the performance of Azure Premium SSDs without downtime. This is a great feature that allows you to scale up or down your disk performance based on your workload needs.

Azure Premium SSDs are high-performance disks that offer low latency and high throughput for demanding applications. They come in different sizes and performance tiers, ranging from P1 (4 GiB, 120 IOPS, 25 MB/s) to P80 (32 TiB, 20,000 IOPS, 900 MB/s).

To change the performance tier of a Premium SSD, you need to follow these steps:

  1. Go to the Azure portal and select your disk from the list of resources.
  2. Click on Configuration under Settings and select the new performance tier from the drop-down menu.
  3. Click Save to apply the changes.

That’s it! You have successfully changed the performance tier of your Premium SSD without any downtime or data loss. You can verify the new performance by checking the metrics of your disk in the portal or using PowerShell.
