Just a short post, this one!

For the sake of tidiness I was just going through and encrypting my other Windows VMs (the AD and AADConnect boxes) when I came across this nice article from Microsoft on the different encryption methods available in Azure.

It’s an all round good article but the part that leapt out at me was that some Linux distributions now support encrypting the OS disk:

Encryption Linux Distros

It doesn’t help me much as my Linux boxes are CentOS 7.1 and Ubuntu 14.04, respectively, but still good to know anyway.
