New NAV Bucket Page on Partner Source

With new NAV release, there will be again some exciting news. Also, a DLP page (Microsoft Dynamics Learning Page) will have some new e-courses about NAV 2016, soon.

How to Deploy NAV 2015 on Azure

First of all, I will make small introduction for all people who don’t know what a Microsoft Azure is. With simple words, Microsoft Azure is Microsoft cloud computing and services platform with physical infrastructure all around the world. On this cloud platform, there is a virtual machines, SQL databases, storages, with Visual Studio online, and many other things, as one “global operating system”. Microsoft Azure also can includes Microsoft Dynamics NAV services.

I will explain some basic deployment topologies that are supported. We can choose topology with one or two virtual machines.

If we choose to deploy Microsoft Dynamics NAV on a single virtual machine, the Microsoft Dynamics NAV Web Server components, Microsoft Dynamics NAV Server, SQL Server, and Microsoft Dynamics NAV database components will be installed on the same virtual machine.

#Azure1

If we choose to deploy Microsoft Dynamics NAV on a two virtual machines, the Microsoft Dynamics NAV Web Server components and Microsoft Dynamics NAV Server will be installed on one virtual machine, and the SQL Server and Microsoft Dynamics NAV database components will be installed on another virtual machine.

#Azure2

In the first scenario, this virtual machine represents a single cloud service on Microsoft Azure, and in second scenario each virtual machine represents a cloud service on Microsoft Azure. In both of these topologies, users can access Microsoft Dynamics NAV data by using the Windows client (from a ClickOnce site or without it), the Web or Tablet client and OData and SOAP web services.

If we want to deploy Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2015 on Microsoft Azure, we can use NAV Provisioning Tools for Microsoft Azure that support the automated deployment of Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2015 on Microsoft Azure virtual machines, using both of topologies. You can find NAV Provisioning Tools as Windows PowerShell scripts on Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2015 installation DVD on \\NAV2015DVD\WindowsPowerShellScripts\Cloud\HowTo\

#Azure3

You can find few files in this folder. First of all, you must configure Set-PartnerSettings file and after that you can run one of the following PowerShell scripts Example-1VM (deployment on 1 VP) or Example-2VM (deployment on 2 VMs).

If you want to deploy Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2015 on only one VM (usually for test or demo environment), you can find all details on How Do I video: https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/dynamics/nav/mt147285

Also, if you want to deploy Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2015 on two VMs (usually for production environment), you can find all details on How Do I video: https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/dynamics/nav/mt147286

In some other articles, I will describe all steps how to make Multitenancy environment or how to use production database, license, language etc.

Video Series on Partner Source Site

In the last few years, you could find a lot of different “How Do I” videos on MSDN or Youtube. But, you always had a problem when you want to find some specific video. Now, Microsoft have arranged a part of Partner Source for these videos and not only for videos. If you are a Microsoft Dynamics NAV partner, you will easy find video you need.

Microsoft organizes six different contents “buckets” from the Readiness & Training News page for Microsoft Dynamics NAV. There are:

Now, you can find all currently published videos, allocated in logical parts. In the near future, there will be a lot new videos to make cohesion between them and all of us hope that it will help to all partners.

Happy New Year and small retrospect

In three days, it will be the end of this year. I have just finished new “How Do I” video and I have plan to finish one more tomorrow. I hope these two my last videos in 2014. years would be interesting.

I want to remind you that you can find all “How Do I” video about NAV 2015 on MSDN here. Very soon, we will have a special well organized places on Partner Source.

Now, few more words about this year. Personally, it’s been a really great year! Thanks for being a part of it. In this year, I become an MVP and I got Customer Excellence Award on Convergence Europe. I had a lot of very interesting projects and lectures, as well. Also, on my personal plan, I has some very good news (but, this is intimately).

I want to say thanks to all people that supported me (and people that do not supported me :-)). I want to all of you to have a year that is better than I already had this year. I also hope, we will get an awesome new version of NAV (‘Corfu’) next year.

And, of course, special thanks to my friends all around the world and especially to my family (my wife, son and dog).
