Microsoft Azure : How To Deploy SQL Server 2012 VM Step By Step Tutorial With Training Video.

In this tutorial, we will see free step by step procedure to install and deploy SQL Server VM VIrtual Machine in Microsoft Azure public cloud using Azure Resource Manager ARM and then post deployment we will create one test database for demonstration purpose for our users. We will choose SQL Server 2012 SP3 Enterprise on Win Server 2012 R2 for our installation. Once we select the said OS with preinstalled SQL server 2012 SP3 version from Azure image gallery, we will choose a hostname for our VM,  select our disk type SSD or HDD according to disk I/O read write performance, IOPS required by the application, choose our login credentials, select our subscription type free or paid, resource group and locatio before proceeding with installation. Then we will choose hardware configuration size of the VM based on the prerequisite and resource requirement of the application. Further going ahead we will choose the Availability Sets HA for our VM, Storage, Virtual Network, Subnet, Public IP, Network Security Group firewall endpoints and other required settings. Then we need to configure the sql connectivity option with defined port number, login credentials for SQL authentication, storage configuration and schedule automated patching, backup and azure key vault integration. Once we are done with the pre configuration of the SQL server VM we will validate the same in Azure and click on purchase after the vm validation test passes. Once the SQL VM server deployment is successful we will login to vm via rdp over the internet using public ip and create a test database using SQL Server Management Studio.
