Regarding Azure VM Configuration Options

Team,

This might be a simple dumb question but need your inputs:

  • For Azure VMs, we have no visibility on security features like Intel TXT, TPM etc. right? These all are hidden from user and these features cannot be enabled on cloud, am I correct to say this?

  • Regarding VM disks, I guess there is no option for use to create a specific RAID etc. All we can do is provision disk with required disk size and IOPs only?

  • Regarding Network bandwidth for VM, it depends on the VM instance type we choose correct? Is there way to configure for more bandwidth?

Hello @RaviKumarShanker-2921 ,
Thank you for posting your query on Microsoft QnA.
Happy to answer your question.
1) Regarding your first question, you do have partial visibility on security features. You can enable vTPM on newly created Azure VMs (generation 2 VMs) by using Trusted Launch. Below is the documentation to that which might help.
Trusted launch

2) You will have to configure RAID yourself from within the VM, at the OS level using Storage Spaces. Please refer to the below :
Disk striping

3) Yes, you are correct. Network bandwidth depends on the VM instance you choose. You can also enable 'Accelerated Networking' for lower latency and higher bandwidth.

Hope this information helps. Please feel free to reach back for any additional queries.
