How does one access a Data Disk Offering in a Virtual Machine instance?

  1. Ssh into your virtual machine (or get some other shell command line access to the virtual machine)
  2. Use fdisk to see which disks are available
  3. The Data Disk will show up as the second disk e.g. /dev/sdb or /dev/vdb depending on the Linux variant or as the D disk in Windows.
