In this short video, we'll walk through deploying a Windows Server 2016 Storage Spaces Direct (S2D) Cluster to a Microsoft Azure subscription using Azure Resource Manager (ARM) Templates.
ARM templates streamline the process of provisioning complex solutions in the cloud. In this scenario, we'll be leveraging two ARM templates from the Azure Quick Start template gallery:
- Deploy VNET and Active Directory Domain Controllers
- Deploy Windows Server 2016 Storage Spaces Direct (S2D) Cluster to existing VNET
These templates can be used together, as shown in the video, or separately to provision just a portion of the overall solution.
