Announcing general availability of Managed Disks and larger Scale Sets

Wednesday, February 8, 2017

Today, I am excited to announce the general availability of Managed Disks. With this PaaS-like support, you no longer need to be concerned with the complexity of storage management nor worry about storage as you scale. Yet, you still have the full power and control you expect and love with Azure VMs – a "PaaS bridge" on our IaaS VMs.
