Adding Persistent Storage

Applications running on the cloud de-allocate any resources consumed when they stop, scale down, or fail. This implies that the working storage associated with them is ephemeral. To get around this problem provides a mechanism to consume persistent block storage for your applications running in the cloud. This storage can be associated with at most one running deployment at any given point in time. A user is typically required to manage the lifecycle of the application code independently from the associated storage. provides disk resources for managing persistent storage.

Creating Storage

To preserve data files saved on the file server, deploy a disk and add it to the package deployment. For more information, see Managing Disks.

Adding Storage to a Deployment

You can add the storage package as a dependent deployment. For more information, see Deploying Packages.
