SQL Server 2012 Web on Windows Server 2012 R2
Is anyone looking at it at all? Support guys forward here and looks for weeks no body even looks this.
In a week time we have to finalize between Amazon and Azure,
Amazon offers more combination then Azure for Windows VMs !!! Isn't this an irony?
Also default SQL Server already installs Data folder in C Drive, well this requires uninstalling and reinstalling SQL, because C drive uses caching which is not supposed to be used by SQL as recommended by MSDN and leaving master, tempdb all on C drive?
Instead why not offer SQL Installer without installation on Windows 2012 VM, we will configure it properly.
Hey Akash. We do look here!! :)
We will chat with the SQL guys about this question.

Do you have any news to share regarding the ability to provision a SQL VM in Azure that don't have SQL Server pre-installed but rather just have the SQL Server installation files on disk so one could do the initial SQL Server installation ourselves?
I am thinking something like having another SQL Server image to choose from that just have the SQL Server installation files and would include the SQL Server license cost.
Akash, thanks for your feedback. I am in SQL engineering and we'll look into adding this in the near future.
Thanks for the suggestion. Moving to the Virtual Machines forum to get the team's response.
