I want to set up a demo SQL Server 2012, Sharepoint 2013, Powerview instance. I want to do BI Development, Excel Development locally on my laptop. I need to research Azure because I've never used it before. I'm just not sure what I should be researching. Would this be an Azure VM or an Azure SQL Server instance? I have a monthly credit with my MSDN subscription if that has any relevance.

Thanks.

For what you want to do you're looking at Virtual Machines. SQL Database is just a relational data store, a platform as a service. You need actual infrastructure. You'll also want to look into setting up a virtual network for what you need. Here's a tutorial that is pretty good on how to do that. You don't have to set up the availability group. Just stop after you get the network configured.

Thanks Grant. This is exactly what I was looking for.

I also loved your book "SQL Server 2012 Query Performance Tuning ".

Thank you!

Good luck on setting up the virtual network. It can be a little tricky at times, but the documentation I sent does work. I've used it a couple of times for setting up environments.
