Deploy SEM on Microsoft Azure

SEM is not currently available in the Azure Marketplace. However, you can initiate deploying SEM through Azure CLI 2.0.

The SEM Installation Guide describes the deployment from Windows (PowerShell) and Linux (Bash).

SolarWinds provides a ZIP archive containing two virtual hard disk (VHD) files:

  • xxx-system.vhd - This file contains an operating system based on Linux Debian.

  • xxx-data.vhd - This file serves as the data partition. The layout is similar to the VMware and Hyper-V appliances.

Azure CLI 2.0 must be installed on Windows or Linux systems. After the CLI is authenticated, you can control Azure through the API by executing CLI commands.
