Deploying to Azure

  • Lee Naylor


Azure is Microsoft’s cloud hosting solution. This chapter shows how to deploy the web site to Azure and have it run over the Web. Azure is available for a free trial period and so can be used by anyone for a limited period of time. Alternatively, if you have registered your copy of Visual Studio and have a Microsoft account, you should be eligible for the Developer Program Benefit and receive a free 12-month trial with $25 a month credit. There are a few ways to deploy to the cloud from Visual Studio; for example, Visual Studio will offer to host your solution in the cloud as soon as you log into it with a Microsoft account; however, in this example we’re going to provide a more detailed example using the Azure Portal to set up servers prior to deploying to them.
