VM roles and the Azure Marketplace RRS feed

  • Question

  • In order to publish an application to Azure Marketplace as a VM role, or a set of VM roles, is it required to have 2 instances of each VM role running?

  • I've checked and the answer is, no, this is not possible.  You cannot publish a VM template (i.e. to VM depot) and have it accessible through the Azure Marketplace; the two are completely separate.

  • Actually, is it even possible to publish VM templates like this?  My bosses want to publish a VM template as a Marketplace application, allowing users to spin up VM roles, like you would in Azure if you select a VM role, then say, a BizTalk Server template as the base.  We'd like to publish a VM template as a base image and hopefully have Marketplace integration or some other means to sell it.
