    Hello MS Techie, Thank you for reaching out to the Microsoft Q&A platform.

    If you are talking about server-side encryption with customer-managed keys for managed disks. There's no charge for encrypting VM disks with Azure Disk Encryption with CMK, but there are charges associated with the use of Azure Key Vault. For more information on Azure Key Vault costs, see the Key Vault pricing page.

    If this does answer your question, please accept it as the answer as a token of appreciation.
