SharePoint on Azure

Not ready for SharePoint Online yet? No problem. Host your SharePoint farms in Azure, scale rapidly based on demand, and save on infrastructure costs. Whether it’s for development, testing, staging, production, or disaster recovery purposes, Azure is a perfect home for your SharePoint workloads.

"Testing a big new deployment like this is essential to success, but development and testing can take up a lot of time and it normally requires that we buy many extra servers that, once testing is concluded, we don’t really need anymore. And that costs us considerable money and other resources. That’s why Microsoft Azure was such a good solution for us."

Andreas Høgberg, Director, Telenor
Use Azure for hosting SharePoint farms.

Deploy SharePoint rapidly and scale as needed

Spin up infrastructure for your SharePoint servers in minutes. Set up development or test farms, or scale out your production SharePoint deployments by instantly adding more resources. Simplify deployment and configuration with ready-to-deploy images and templates that are based on tried and tested configurations, and reduce the time to deploy complex SharePoint farms from days to minutes.

"By using Azure, we were able to launch our new extranet in six weeks versus waiting up to eight months for new servers to arrive. This helped us better deliver information to our gas stations and investors."

Mariela Manzanares, Manager of Infrastructure Support

Host your SharePoint sites cost effectively

Pay-as-you-go pricing and per-minute billing from Azure helps you save money. For development and testing, take advantage of Azure benefits for Visual Studio subscribers to reduce software licensing costs. When testing, spin up additional servers as needed for scale and load testing over short periods of time and remove them when you’re finished. Using resources that you need—and no more—helps you be more cost effective.

"The cheapest traditional hosting service we saw still would have required us to invest three times more than Azure in terms of servers, just for the initial setup, Azure gives us the most functionality at the lowest cost."

Nawaf Abdulrahman, IT Manager

SharePoint is pay-as-you-go pricing from Azure.
Move Azure virtual machines across premises.

Seamlessly move virtual machines across premises

A virtual machine in Azure running Windows or SQL Server is no different than a server running on-premises. Easily move virtual machines between on-premises physical servers, servers at your hosting providers, and Azure. With this portability, quickly and easily replicate your SharePoint dev-test environments or secondary production sites in Azure. And of course, move them back on-premises when the need arises.

"With its hybrid-cloud software, Microsoft has made it very easy for our customers to stop thinking in terms of on-premises or off-premises and to just think in terms of the solution they need."

Philip Moss, Chief Executive Officer and Chief Technology Officer

Run Microsoft applications where they run best

Bet on the cloud that was built by the same company that built SharePoint and SQL Server. These applications have been battle-tested to perform well on Azure. Use your existing licenses with license mobility and the Azure Hybrid Benefit, and get first-class, first-party support across Azure, SharePoint, and SQL Server. Running SharePoint on Azure ensures your solution is on the same cloud that runs Office 365 and Microsoft Dynamics CRM Online, helping you to easily integrate across these.

"By running K2 in Microsoft Azure, we can be very close to the datacenters running these other Microsoft cloud products so that we can deliver the best possible network performance and the lowest possible latency between application components."

Dave Marcus, Senior Vice President of Partners and Alliances

Running SharePoint on Azure is easy.

  1. Overview
  2. Flow

This solution provides a highly available deployment of SharePoint using a load balanced Azure Active Directory (Azure AD), highly available SQL always on instance, and highly available SharePoint resources. It addresses the requirement to deliver highly available intranet capability using the latest and greatest supported platforms.

  1. 1 Create resource group for the storage, network, and virtual machine, plus other dependent elements.
  2. 2 Create virtual network to host the virtual machines and load balancers for the deployment. Ensure the network has appropriate network security groups implemented to protect network traffic flow.
  3. 3 Create the storage accounts that will host the virtual hard disks (vhds) for the machine images.
  4. 4 Create the Active Directory installation using either a new virtual machine or Azure AD domain services. If using Azure AD domain services, consider synchronizing identities to Azure AD with Azure AD Connect.
  5. 5 Create a Windows failover cluster and install a supported version of SQL Server on an Azure virtual machine (VM) or deploy pay-as-you-go instances of SQL Server.
  6. 6 Deploy SharePoint onto multiple Azure VMs, or, use trial images from the gallery that already have SharePoint Server installed.
  7. 7 Create the SharePoint farm.
  8. 8 Set up an Azure external load balancer to direct incoming HTTPS traffic to the SharePoint server.
  9. 9 Use Express Route or VPN Gateway for management access to resource group.
  10. 10 On-premises users can access the SharePoint sites via the internet, Express Route, or VPN Gateway.
  11. 11 External users can be granted access as required to the SharePoint sites for testing.
