If we have the clear requirement of the storage and if we need extra storage space then we can select Disk tab and add more disks. But here we are not adding any additional disk. We can scale up the VM later by adding new disk if required.We will post another blog Azure – Certification 70-532-Part 2- Managing Azure Virtual Machine Disks as shown in the following figure.
