So its a Friday evening, and here I am trying to improve my personal record for setting up GP on Azure. I go into Azure Gallery, and what do I see – “Microsoft Dynamics GP 2013 Developer image”!
How cool is this ? I can now pop up new builds with GP in a heartbeat. Use them for a few days and dispose them. All from my tiny notebook!
Provisioning the Virtual Machine took around 10 minutes, and I was logging into GP in another 5 minutes. Brilliant Microsoft!
Time to play the Pointer Sisters – “I’m so excited”
