Today, we are excited to announce the public preview of Azure Disk Encryption for Virtual Machine Scale Sets (VMSS). With this announcement, Azure disk encryption can be enabled for Windows and Linux VM Scale Sets in Azure public regions to enable customers to help protect and safeguard the Scale Sets data at rest using industry standard encryption technology.
The solution is currently deployed in Azure canary region and should be soon deployed broadly to all Azure public regions. We will update this blog soon with additional details on supported scenarios and interfaces and how you can use the disk encryption technology preview to encrypt your VM Scale Sets and validate your scenario. Stay tuned for additional details..
The preview solution was presented at Microsoft Ignite conference by Guy Bowerman. The presentation is available here [Azure disk encryption announcement starts at time 54:00]
