Hey there, welcome to my blog where I share some tips and tricks on how to use Azure Managed Disks. Today I want to talk about how to enable Zone redundant storage (ZRS) for your disks and why you should do it.
ZRS is a replication option that allows you to store three copies of your data across different availability zones in the same region. This means that even if one zone goes down, your data is still safe and accessible from the other zones. ZRS also provides higher write availability and durability than other replication options.
To enable ZRS for your Managed Disks, you need to follow these steps:
- Create a new disk or snapshot with ZRS as the replication type. You can do this from the Azure portal, Azure CLI, PowerShell, or SDKs.
- Attach the disk or snapshot to a virtual machine that supports ZRS. You can check the list of supported VM sizes here: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/virtual-machines/zones#services-support-by-region
- That’s it! You can now enjoy the benefits of ZRS for your Managed Disks.
