PBS on prem sync to PBS in azure

May 28, 2020
South Africa
Morning all,

I want to setup a PBS vm inside Azure and to setup a twice daily sync job from my on prem PBS to the azure PBS so i have a complete off-site backup in place.

Can i get away with using Std HDD attached disks (2000 IOPS for 10TB) for the VM storage for the datastore or do i need to bite the bullet and fork out for std SSD (4000 IOPS for 10TB)?

Thanks in advance
