Building SharePoint Farm in Azure using Template for Dev & Test

Posted on

The Microsoft Azure Preview Portal automatically creates a pre-configured SharePoint Server 2013 farm for us. This can save you a lot of time when we need a basic or high-availability SharePoint farm for a development and testing environment.

The basic SharePoint farm consists of three virtual machines in this configuration.

Small_SPFarm

We can use this farm configuration for a simplified setup for SharePoint app development or first-time evaluation of SharePoint 2013.

The high-availability SharePoint farm consists of nine virtual machines in this configuration.

Medium_SPFarm

We can use this farm configuration to test higher client loads, high availability of the external SharePoint site, and SQL Server AlwaysOn for a SharePoint farm. We can also use this configuration for SharePoint app development in a high-availability environment.
