Launching VM in Azure
This document is intended to assist you with deploying and basic configuration of your virtual Sansay product within the Azure cloud platform. This document assumes that you are already familiar with Azure and that your Azure account has already been created.
The first step is to upload the VHD image file to Azure. The following steps explain the entire process. Some of these may already exist if you are using Azure for other purposes.
We are providing the following outline as milestones that will help you advance to the next step.
Create resource group matching the region where the VM will be deployed, or use existing resource group. https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/azure-resource-manager/management/manage-resource-groups-portal
Create a storage account or use existing: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/storage/common/storage-account-create
- Create storage blob container: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/storage/blobs/storage-quickstart-blobs-portal
- Inside the blob container, click on upload and browse to your VHD file.
- Create an image. In the Azure Portal, select Images.
- Click Add to create a new image.
- Ensure that the region of the image matches your desired location.
- In the OS disk section: Select Linux .
- VM generation: Gen 1.
- Click Browse on the Storage Blob field. A new panel will list your storage accounts. Using this panel, navigate through the storage account and container to locate the the VHD file that was uploaded.
- Click Create to begin the image creation process. This process typically takes a few minutes to complete.
- When the process has completed, return to the Images panel and verify that the new image was created.
From the Azure Portal, you can select the recently created image and choose to create a VM.
Alternatively you can browse for Virtual Machines and then browse for the image.
Click on either "Add" or "Create Virtual Machine"
Follow the instructions, of special importance will be:
- Image. Make sure to click on Browse all public and private images.
- Size (Instance Type). Please refer to our sizing guide above if you have not already.
Prior to creating the VM please make sure to allow access to port 22 and 8888 (TCP).
Click on Review + Create. After validation has passed, click on Create.
Once the VM is running, please add inbound rules for the following traffic:
- TCP / 8888: For GUI / API / management
- SSH / 22: For support / management
- Signaling: Port 5060 or any other alternate ports.
- Media: UDP 10000-40000.
