  • Hi,

    The maximum disk size on Azure is 1 TB.

    So you will need to aggregate seven (7) 1 TB disks (Stripping) to obtain the required size.

    You will have to choose a VM size which supports at least 7 disks, so 8 disks on Azure.

    The adequate VM sizes are with 8 disks are. The VM configuration also change (Basic are preferably for dev/test purposes and not for production)

    - Basic A3

    - A3

    - A6

    - D3

    - D12

    - D3-V2

    - D12-V2

    - G2

    Check the Azure prices to determine the size you want to get

    Then you have to attach 7 disks and use a aggregation tool to aggregate the disks to have 7 TB:
