Extend Storage Pool for On-Premise Server with Azure Storage RRS feed

  • Question

  • Can i populate or extend an on-premise Windows Server Storage Pool with a storage account from Azure?

    I've considered Managed Disks (not compatible) and Azure Files (not suitable).

  • Firstly, apologies for the delay in responding here and any inconvenience this issue may have caused. 
    Unfortunately it's Not supported You can have capacity only from local(s2d) pool: resizing the underlying storage used by Storage Spaces Direct. If you are running Storage Spaces Direct in a virtualized storage environment, including in Azure, resizing or changing the characteristics of the storage devices used by the virtual machines isn't supported and will cause data to become inaccessible. Instead, follow the instructions in the Add servers or drives section to add additional capacity before extending volumes.

    Hope this helps! 

    Kindly let us know if the above helps or you need further assistance on this issue.
