  • Two domain controllers

See the following figure for the configuration.

SharePoint 2013 in Windows Azure

Two machines for each role ensure high availability. All of the virtual machines are in a single affinity group. Each pair of virtual machines for a specific role is in their own availability set.

This deployment of SharePoint with SQL Server AlwaysOn Availability Groups is designed to accompany the SharePoint with SQL Server AlwaysOn Infographic and incorporate the latest recommendations.

Prior to deployment, you can create a test environment that mimics an intranet SharePoint farm deployed in an Azure-based hybrid cloud. For the instructions, see Set up a SharePoint intranet farm in a hybrid cloud for testing. You can use this test environment to see the performance of the SharePoint farm relative to your location on the Internet and for intranet-based SharePoint application development and testing.
