Silverstripe CMS installation and operation on Azure

Has the SilverStripe CMS been set up on Windows Azure? If so, did you encounter any difficulties with the CMS’s installation or ongoing operation?

I’m pushing Azure for the .Net application being created on my current project. I would like to host both the application and the website on Azure. The website was created using the SilverStripe CMS.

Any information, ideas, or comments is greatly valued!

Hey there, I have a number of sites on Azure and it works just fine. We use the Azure Database for MySQL to host the database, an Azure App Gateway to control access, forwarding to an Azure App Service which runs the Silverstripe code via a Docker container in our private registry (also hosted by Azure).

For session storage, we use either Azure Cache for Redis and run all Silverstripe cache (template caches, session storage etc) via that, or if the site is simpler we just store sessions in the MySQL database.

Hope this is of some use! Ultimately though, Azure can host Linux VMs as well, so you can also do it quite simply using a couple of Linux VMs as well.
