Use aligned availability sets#

Use availability sets aligned with managed disks fault domains.


Availability sets can be configured to align with managed disk fault domains. When aligned, the fault domain for storage is co-located with compute. Aligned availability sets help prevent compute and storage from a single VM spanning multiple fault domains.


Consider deploying VMs with managed disks into aligned availability sets.
