Windows Azure Virtual Machines now has a pre-built image for BizTalk Server 2013.  This will enable you to get up and running with BizTalk 2013 in just a few minutes.  Configuration is needed once you create a new virtual machine using this image.

The pre-built Image includes the following:

  • Windows Server 2012
  • SQL 2012
  • Visual Studios 2012 Professional RC (I think this does not support the Windows Azure SDK)
  • BizTalk 2013 Beta Enterprise Edition

I was able to create a new virtual machine using this image and configure BizTalk.  The Rules Engine failed to configure, but I did not look into why.

Let me know if you run into any issues with the Image.
