At some point, a couple of years back, getting a full blown Microsoft Dynamics NAV installation up and running was not a minor task. Multiple components should be installed, lots of setup to do. It could easily take an experienced person hours, if not days to get a complete installation up and running.
Thankfully, this has changed, and deploying Dynamics NAV in Microsoft Azure has never been easier than it is today.

Fill out this form. Mouse over the small (i) markers to get help.
Some of the settings can be left blank if you don’t have a Bing Maps key. But please make sure that you select the correct country – W1 is the worldwide version of NAV, the version without any country specific functionality or language layers. If you want functionality specific to your country, you must select it.
Ohhh, wait, you’re done, take a coffee break, let Azure deploy your server and then log into your new NAV instance when it’s ready!
