This lesson 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.
