A great feature would be to be able to specify whether to encrypt data disks at provision time with Azure Disk Encryption. Please share if this is in the roadmap. Thanks.
Yes, it would be useful to support that and it is on our roadmap, too, but as the encryption process can take between 3-16 hours to finish (typically around 10 hours in our trials), the feature implementation is currently on hold.
If the performance would get better, we will reconsider supporting this.
Your thoughts are welcome on this topic.
Managed disks have Storage Service Encryption enabled by default. Have not had a chance to look at Azure Disk Encryption in this context but need to for a customer as well for HDP. Would help to get some additional details - perhaps via Paige, so we can get product/engineering team involved if needed.
