Azure Managed Disks provide a way to manage disk-based data storage and access the data in your VMs. Azure Disks provide the main operating system storage for virtual machines, but additional disks can be attached to VMs to provide storage as well. This allows you to use storage that is optimized for the needs of different parts of your infrastructure. In this lab, you will be able to work with Azure Data Disks hands-on. You will create a disk, attach it to a Linux VM, and mount it from within the VM so that it is ready for use.

What are Hands-On Labs?

Hands-On Labs are scenario-based learning environments where learners can practice without consequences. Don't compromise a system or waste money on expensive downloads. Practice real-world skills without the real-world risk, no assembly required.
