Deploying ArangoDB on Microsoft Azure
ArangoDB can be deployed on Azure or other cloud platforms. Deploying on a cloud provider is common choice and many of the most big ArangoDB installation are running on the cloud.
No Azure-specific scripts or tools are needed to deploy on Azure. Deploying on Azure is still possible, and again, a quite common scenario.
After having initialized your preferred Azure instance, with one of the ArangoDB supported operating systems, using the ArangoDB Starter, performing a Manual Deployment, or using Kubernetes are all valid options to deploy on Azure. Please refer to the corresponding chapters for further information.
Important: In order to deploy on Azure, general guidelines, like using a fast, direct-attached, SSD disk for the data directory of the ArangoDB processes apply.
