Deploy your Oracle-based enterprise applications on Azure, or pay as you go for Oracle Database or WebLogic Server—both available now in the Azure image marketplace.
Now you can combine Java with the power of Azure. The Java development environment is now available in the Azure image marketplace.
After creating your account and signing in, navigate to the Azure Management Portal. The management portal is a modern, web-based experience where you can manage and configure all of your Azure services. From the new menu at the bottom of the portal, select Compute. You will have the option to select from a library of preconfigured virtual machine images. Select the appropriate Oracle software image from the list. If you don’t see the Oracle software you want, select Azure Marketplace to see additional solutions. There you will find several options that include Oracle Linux, Database, WebLogic Server, and Java Development Kit. Some include the licenses for the Oracle software, enabling you to pay as you go. Others are ready for you to bring your own license.
You will have the ability to configure your new Virtual Machine by providing a unique name, selecting the size of the virtual machine, and by providing a username and password. Don’t forget the username and password, since you will need it later to connect to your virtual machine. After providing your configuration settings, just click Create.
After a few minutes your virtual machine will be provisioned. Once the virtual machine is running, simply select it and click on the Connect button. Next, enter the username and password that you provided when creating the virtual machine. Finally, you will be connected through remote desktop directly into your new virtual machine running the Oracle software you selected.

Microsoft and Oracle now provide best in class, end to end, support for customers running Oracle software on Azure. Use your existing licenses to run Oracle software on either Microsoft Windows or Oracle Linux on Azure and receive full support from Oracle.
Or, use license-included instances of Oracle Database, Oracle WebLogic Server, or the Java development environment on Windows Server. Whether you’re an Oracle admin or a Java developer, you now have increased flexibility and choice in where to deploy your applications and the safety and security that comes from knowing you will be fully supported by Oracle.
