This blog will walk you through on how to configure Storage Spaces for Azure Virtual Machine (Windows). Finally, we get to see some IOPS benchmarks.
Each data disk (Standard Storage Account) has about 500 IOPS. In this example, we are going to create a Storage Space by attaching 4 data disks to a Standard A2 sized Azure VM. In theory, this should increase the IOPS to 2k. (500 x 4 = 2000)
Configuring Storage Spaces for Azure windows VM
Step 1: Attach four data disks to your virtual machine.
From the azure portal, select your virtual machine >> Click on “Disks” >> click on the “+ Add data disk” >> Fill out the details accordingly >> Save the disk.
Repeat this process 3 more times and we will have 4 data disks attached to our virtual machine as shown below:
Inside the VM, we can see the disks attached:
