by John Stucky

What are your plans October 10-13, 2017? If you haven’t registered yet, I invite you to join me at GPUG Summit Nashville and to also attend my session, How to Configure Azure to Host Your Software. GPUG Summit is THE go-to conference that brings industry experts, software development vendors, and everyday users together to discuss important issues, trends, product updates, customer pain points, and genuine solutions. The value of GPUG Summit is endless!

The breakout session I’ll be leading is for users who own a perpetual license and are looking to migrate their infrastructure to the Azure Cloud. You can host virtually ANY software in the cloud with Azure. We will show you how to create your own Azure account and walk through the basics of the Azure service offerings. We will configure a hosted virtual machine and provide a high level discussion of some of the options. We will also review pricing and sizing models. Finally, we will end with a review of the pros and cons of hosting your software in the cloud with Azure.

Learning Objectives:

•Be able to evaluate the pros and cons of establishing their own hosting environment in Azure to host their software.

•Be able to list and have basic familiarity with the Azure services that are available.

•Gain understanding of the sizing options and pricing options that are available with Azure.

-Use Case scenarios of how to start/when to use it:


-test or dev environment

-trying out add-ons, o/s, patch, sql upgrades, etc.

-non-mission critical components - web server, integration, etc.

In addition to my breakout session, you can find many, many more valuable topics of learning. All sessions are hand-crafted by our Programming Committee based on submissions from the Dynamics GP community. There’s no better instructor than an actual Dynamics GP user, and that’s what makes GPUG Summit unique.
