Working with Disks, Snapshots & Images
This course covers disks, snapshots, and images in Azure. We'll explore the benefits of managed disks and the types of encryption you can use with them, before moving on to look at the different disk types that are available in Microsoft Azure. A guided demo from the Azure portal will show you how to add a data disk to an Azure VM.
We'll then dive into snapshots and images, where you'll learn about disk snapshots, custom images, and the differences between them. We’ll wrap things up with a few demos, where you'll get to see how to restore a VM from a snapshot and how to create a VM from a generalized image.
- Learn about the benefits of managed disks, the different disks available in Azure, and how to add a disk to an Azure VM

Congratulations. You’ve come to the end of Disks, Snapshots, and Images in Azure. Let’s review what you’ve learned.
We started things off with an introduction to Azure-managed disks. We took a look at the benefits of managed disks and at the types of encryption you can use with managed disks.
We then took a look at the different disk types that are available in Microsoft Azure.
After we covered disk types, you got to watch over my shoulder as I added a data disk to an Azure VM.
We then dove into snapshots and images, where you learned about disk snapshots, custom images, and the differences between them.
We wrapped things up with a few demos, where you got to see how to restore a VM from a snapshot and how to create a VM from a generalized image.
At this point, you should have a solid understanding of disks, snapshots, and images in Azure.
To learn more about disks, snapshots, and images in Azure, you can, and should, read Microsoft’s published documentation. Be sure to also watch for new courses on Cloud Academy, because we’re always publishing new ones. Be sure to give this course a rating, and if you have any questions or comments, please let us know.
