Exasol is available now on the open and flexible cloud platform Microsoft Azure. Access the database via the Azure Marketplace and get started in just minutes via Azure Virtual Machines.

Getting started

We recommend setting up Exasol as cluster. This offers the following advantages:

    • Scalability: easily scale out a cluster by adding additional nodes to process more data and to serve more concurrent users
    • High availability: When a nodes failes the system automatically tries to repair this node or includes a standby node into the system (if a standby node was configured).

However, for small data sizes or evaluation purposes a single-node system might be be sufficient and appropriate.

The easiest way to configure and deploy an Exasol cluster or single node system is using our Cloud Deployment Wizard for public clouds. This tool will guide you through the sizing, configuration and deployment process. Internally it uses and parameterizes our standard Azure Resource Manager templates (see below). After having configured your cluster you can either download the preconfigured templates or directly open them in the Azure Portal to proceed with the deployment process.

Exasol for Microsoft Azure is available via the Azure Marketplace
