Quick Tip – SQL Azure VM’s

When creating VM’s for IO work e.g. SQL Server.

Max out the allowed number of disks even if you’re not going to use the storage and stripe the data files across the disks:

  • You only pay for the storage you use – even though the VHD is sized
  • You get the combined IO for free
