Published date: February 29, 2024


Encryption at host is now generally available for Premium SSD v2 and Ultra Disks in Canada East, West Europe, South Central US and West US 3.

When you enable encryption at host, that encryption starts on the Virtual Machine (VM) host itself, the Azure server that your VM is allocated to. The data on the VM host is encrypted at rest and flows encrypted to the Storage service.
