Ephemeral OS disks work well for stateless workloads, where applications are tolerant of individual VM failures, but are more affected by VM deployment time or reimaging the individual VM instances. With Ephemeral OS disk, you get lower read/write latency to the OS disk and faster VM reimage. The key features of ephemeral disks are: Ideal for stateless applications. They can be used with both Marketplace and custom images. Ability to fast reset or reimage VMs and scale set instances to the original boot state. Lower latency, similar to a temporary disk. Ephemeral OS disks are free, you incur no storage cost for OS disk. They are available in all Azure regions. Ephemeral OS Disk is supported by Shared Image Gallery.   Loads of announcements this week due to inspire - I've put a few below, but it's not exhaustive.
