Hey present or future Azure fans,
Automatically create your next development or test SharePoint 2013 farm in Microsoft Azure describes the SharePoint Server Farm template in the Azure Preview Portal, which allows you to very easily create a standalone SharePoint farm in an Azure cloud-only virtual network.
The new SQL Server AlwaysOn template in Azure Preview Portal…
automatically builds out the following configuration:
Like the SharePoint farms created with the SharePoint Server Farm template, the SQL Server AlwaysOn template creates a standalone configuration with its own domain and domain controllers in an Azure cloud-only virtual network.
You specify custom settings for this configuration in the Create pane…
and the Azure Preview Portal does the rest.
Use this as a pre-configured lab environment to experiment with SQL Server AlwaysOn Availability Groups. See SQL Server AlwaysOn Offering in Microsoft Azure Portal Gallery for more information.
