1 VM in vNet - Multiple data disks

This template is designed to create a demo environment to test the IOPS, latency and throughput on different types of Azure disks, as described in the following blogs posts:

https://blogs.technet.microsoft.com/andrewc/2016/09/09/understanding-azure-virtual-machine-iops-throughput-and-disk-latency/

https://blogs.technet.microsoft.com/andrewc/2016/09/09/understanding-azure-virtual-machine-iops-throughput-and-disk-latency-part-2/

This template creates a single VM running Windows Server 2016 with multiple data disks attached using Managed Disks.

This template also deploys a Storage Account, Virtual Network and Public IP Address.

The VM is an S-class size which supports Azure Premium Storage disks.

The template also used the PowerShell Desired State Configuration (DSC) VM extension to:

  • Prepare and format the data disks
  • Install ioMeter using Chocolatey
  • Download and extract 20 pre-defined ioMeter tests to C:\iometerTests
