General Availability: Premium SSD v2 and Ultra disks support with Trusted launch

Published date: January 10, 2024

Trusted launch VMs now support Azure Premium SSD v2 disks and Ultra disks storage which allows you to host workloads on high throughput, high IOPS, and consistent low latency disk storage with foundational compute security offered by Trusted Launch configuration.

Trusted Launch VMs provide foundational compute security to Azure Generation 2 VMs by enabling Secure Boot and vTPM capabilities. Trusted Launch capabilities protects OS against rootkits, boot kits and enables attestation by measuring the boot chain of VM.

Ultra disks are the highest-performing storage option for Azure virtual machines, offering sub-millisecond latency and industry-leading performance per disk. They are best suited for data-intensive workloads such as SAP HANA, top-tier databases, and transaction-heavy workloads.

On the other hand, Premium SSD v2 disks provide the best price-performance by offering sub-millisecond latency and high performance at a low cost. They are ideal for a broad range of enterprise workloads such as SQL server, Oracle, SAP, Cassandra, Mongo DB, big data/analytics, gaming, on virtual machines or stateful containers.
