Deploying AX 2012 R3 on Azure

The R3 version of Dynamics AX 2012 is finally here and one of its keenly expected features is the deployment on Windows Azure. I haven’t got chance to try it yet, nevertheless I already want to share an idea about how to do it.

You’ll obviously need a Windows Azure subscription. You’ll also need Microsoft Dynamics Lifecycle Services (LCS) where you’ll create a new project (with Product version = Dynamics AX 2012 R3) and link it with the Azure subscription. Then you’ll create a new cloud environment in LCS and deploy it.

More details are available in Deploy Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 R3 on Azure using Lifecycle Services.
