CRM 2015 in Azure VMs RRS feed

  • Question

  • So I've seen and/or heard that you can't run CRM in Azure, but my question is 'why'? What are the Azure limitations that prevent this?  You can get static storage and IP Addresses, correct?

    Ideally, you'd have 3 or more VM's. 

    1 - Main Web Server

    1 - Backup Web Server with Async services and Email router on it

    1 - Dedicated SQL 2014 server with SSD level storage for best performance

    All of them could be on the same virtual network, with only the main web server set to IFD?  You'd also need a domain controller, and an 'azure only' domain with just service accounts in it.  Then your IFD could use claims and ADFS hosted elsewhere on the internet?

    Seems like this would work, but I'd love to know if someone else has tried and made this work?
