Azure Disk Encryption for Virtual Machine Scale Sets

Azure Disk Encryption provides volume encryption for the OS and data disks of your virtual machines, helping protect and safeguard your data to meet organizational security and compliance commitments. To learn more, see Azure Disk Encryption: Linux VMs and Azure Disk Encryption: Windows VMs

Azure Disk Encryption can also be applied to Windows and Linux virtual machine scale sets, in these instances:

  • Scale sets created with managed disks. Azure Disk encryption is not supported for native (or unmanaged) disk scale sets.
  • OS and data volumes in Windows scale sets.
  • Data volumes in Linux scale sets. OS disk encryption is NOT supported at present for Linux scale sets.

You can learn the fundamentals of Azure Disk Encryption for virtual machine scale sets in just a few minutes with the Encrypt a virtual machine scale sets using the Azure CLI or the Encrypt a virtual machine scale sets using the Azure PowerShell tutorials.
