Use aligned availability sets#

Reliability · Virtual Machine · Azure.VM.ASAlignment

Use availability sets aligned with managed disks fault domains.

Description#

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.

Recommendation#

Consider deploying VMs with managed disks into aligned availability sets.
