Anyone have experience with hosting GP in Azure? Just curious what VM sizing you chose, and what performance tips you might have? How hard was the migration process? Sure seems like a hot topic but I see all different kinds of recommendations out there.
Hosting GP in Azure still requires a Windows Server and a SQL installation; the pure Azure SQL doesn't work with GP, I think it is primarily due to authentication, but others here may have more insight on that limitation. The VPN tunnel providing access to the Azure hosted site can sometimes require a network guru, but otherwise it looks and feels a lot like it does if you had it all on prem. The pay-by-the-minute thing and some other features about Azure hosting have both intrigued and bothered me at the same time.
Hi Jon, you may be interested in this post I made about delivering GP via the web... This vid shows GP delivered thru a web page which is sitting on an Azure server. Although the server is OS and SQL in one, it's only for demo so you would need to extend that depending on the number of users etc... https://www.linkedin.com/posts/robert-hyndman-seventeen_dynamics-gp-in-the-cloud-activity-6745477034807570432-874z
