Azure Deployment

One of the fundamental design decisions used during the development of Enterprise Server for .NET is that a deployment can be deployed on-premise (in the customer's domain on customer hardware), and in the cloud in Azure with equal ease.

Deploying a CICS or JES system is no more difficult, if not easier than deploying locally. The Enterprise Server for .NET core functionality is exactly the same using exactly the same code base, just running in a different host environment.

Enterprise Server for .NET can be deployed as either worker roles or into virtual machines running in Azure. Virtual machines in Azure can also be used to host 3rd party applications that cannot be integrated into Azure worker roles, e.g. schedulers, printer management , etc.

Some advantages and disadvantages to keep in mind when deploying Enterprise Server for .NET system and applications to Azure are discussed below.
