Joint Regional Support Matrix | Azure VMware Solution and Pure CBS

Currently viewing public documentation. Please login to access the full scope of documentation.


Azure VMware Solution and Pure Cloud Block Store are supported in many, but not all Azure regions.  Support of both AVS and CBS within the same region and the same availability zone within a region is strongly suggested for deployment to ensure optimal performance between the two solutions.

Pure Cloud Block Store uses two different types of Azure managed disks for persistent storage.  It is recommended to leverage the PremiumSSDv2 SKU of CBS as it is both more performant and cost-effective than the UltraSSD version of the product.  PremiumSSDv2 is continually being added to the regions listed below, so expect this table to be iterated over time.  A 'Yes' in the PremiumSSDv2 column denotes that the PremiumSSDv2 version of the product is available for that regions.  A 'No' means that only the UltraSSD version of Pure Cloud Block Store is available at this time.

Prior to deployment, make sure to consult the below table and confirm that both AVS and CBS are supported in your desired target region.
