[cf-dev] Ephemeral Disk Support for Windows 1709 and Windows 1803 Stemcells

Kartik Lunkad
Hi all,
We are rolling out Ephemeral Disk Support for the Windows Server, version 1709-based stemcells as well as Windows Server, version 1803-based stemcells! You can find them on https://bosh.io/stemcells/

What is this feature? 
This feature will allow you to have a much smaller root disk footprint, and allow you to use ephemeral disk for your applications! We have now reduced the root disk to be 30GB. 

What versions? 
You should find this feature in the 1709.13+ and 1803.2+ stemcells! 

Recommendations
The minimum ephemeral disk size should be 30GB. You could configure your ephemeral disk based on your applications' needs. Our recommendation would be to have at least a 100GB ephemeral disk size. 

How to use it? 
You can utilize this feature just the way you've done with Linux previously with setting vm_types/vm_extensions in your cloud config. Once you've done that, you can then use that in your deployment manifest!

Example - 

Cloud Config Example

vm_extenions:
- name: 100GB_ephemeral_disk
  cloud_properties:
    disk: 51200 

Deployment Manifest Example

instance_groups:
- name: windows1709
  instances: 1
  vm_type: default
  stemcell: windows
  vm_extensions: [100GB_ephemeral_disk]

The BOSH Windows team have worked hard to enable this functionality. Please do provide us feedback on it! 

Thanks,

Awesome!!!!!

Couple ideas:
- might want to consider cross posting to cf-bosh as well if you weren’t already planning to
- if there are high level outcomes this improves, like deploy speed, upgrade speed, security (disk encryption?), or anything like that in addition to Ubuntu  parity, that’d be awesome to call out as well

Cheers, congrats on shipping this!

Hi Kartik,

 

Great to hear that.

Is this feature supported in Windows 2012R2?

Before this new feature, how did customers store their ephemeral data? Using Root disk to store the ephemeral data?

 

Thanks

Bin

Hey Bin,
Unfortunately, we wouldn't be adding ephemeral disk support for Windows 2012R2-based stemcells. 

Before this feature, we used to provide a large root disk by default that can be used by the applications to store their ephemeral data. 

Thanks,
Kartik
