SharePoint Azure Guide

Category: Azure, SharePoint


Welcome to my little “unofficial” SharePoint Azure guide. This guide is somewhat geared toward IT pros & developers, but the information can be helpful to anyone interested in SharePoint and Azure. I wanted to create a guide to help others avoid the making the same mistakes I have using Azure and hope to save you money, prevent as many issues from occurring as possible and help you understand parts of Azure that are not explained or documented very well.

Remember, Microsoft Azure (renamed from Windows Azure) is constantly evolving and changes more often than Lady Gaga changes outfits in her Applause video. I do my best to keep these articles up to date but always check the Azure website to verify any information. If you find any mistakes, have questions or would like to add more help to this guide, just add a comment on each page or tweet me @matthewjbailey1.
