Hi Guys,

I can not find where to choose the HDD/SSD disk type for VMs when creating a pool. Or If I select machines with "s" postfix it will automatically provision VMs with SSD?

Hi Victor,

Currently Batch only supports HDD disk type VMs.

Note that support for premium VM sizes that support SSD disks is coming soon.

The newest Batch APIs support attaching empty data disks to compute nodes as well.

I will update this thread when premium VM sizes support is released.

Thanks for clarification Fred!
