Deploy a managed disk that uses zone-redundant storage
This article covers how to deploy a disk that uses zone-redundant storage (ZRS) as a redundancy option. ZRS replicates your Azure managed disk synchronously across three Azure availability zones in the selected region. Each availability zone is a separate physical location with independent power, cooling, and networking.
For conceptual information on ZRS, see Zone-redundant storage for managed disks
ZRS for managed disks have the following restrictions:
- Only supported with premium solid-state drives (SSD) managed disks and standard SSDs.
- Currently available only in the West US 2, West Europe, North Europe, and France Central regions.
Create a VM with a ZRS OS disk
Sign in to the Azure portal.
Navigate to Virtual machines and follow the normal VM creation process.
Select a supported region and set Availability options to No infrastructure redundancy required.
Proceed to the Disks pane.
Select your disk and select one of the ZRS disks in the drop-down.
Proceed through the rest of the VM deployment, making any choices that you desire.
You've now deployed a VM with a ZRS OS disk.
Create a ZRS disk
In the Azure portal, search for and select Disks.
Select + Add to create a new disk.
Select a supported region and Availability zone to None.
Select Change size.
Select one of the available ZRS disks and select OK.
Continue through the deployment process.
You have now created a managed disk that uses ZRS.
