  • There isn't much of a direct relationship at this point yet. 

    Azure is a Microsoft cloud platform that you can built cloud applications on.  Microsoft CRM and CRM Online are pre-built applications (with lots of customization potential xRM).

    I can see that potentially one can have a "meshup"/hybrid cloud app involve Microsoft CRM (On Premise or Online) and some applications/functions running on Azure.

  • Overtime, there will be more documentation for the relationships between Dynamics CRM and Windows Azure.  Below is another useful example of the opportunities between the two offerings.

  • Thanks for the reply!

    It looks like there a number of videos that may help me (search on xRM on the page) at the PDC site:


    It is interesting that SugarCRM runs on Azure. I suppose CRM Online will also at some point in the future (but I guess no info is available yet)?

  • Azure is getting a lot of buzz these days - supporting both open and close source partners.

    Building cloud applications is becoming easier which is great news for the consumers.

  • Frank,

    Do you know if Microsoft has announced their intention to run Dyanmics CRM in Azure and general timeframe?

    Would that have major advatages or is it not so important?

  • Nothing specific that I'm aware of, but it may already using components/infrastrucutre of Azure.  Since Microsoft is the developer of the CRM Online application and giving it the 99.9% uptime and overall support - doesn't matter too much to the end consumer.

    What perspectives are you looking at this from? 3rd party applications?
