openSUSE back on Azure

After a brief haitus, 12.3 brings openSUSE back to Windows Azure.


We've been working closely with the Azure team to make sure Geekos have a great experience there, and now openSUSE 12.3 is available in all global regions.  When we released 12.2, we had some issues provisioning new instances reliably on Azure, but thanks to a big update to Azure's infrastructure, we're back in business.

The easiest way to get started wtih Azure is by cloning the openSUSE 12.3 for Windows Azure or SLES 11 SP2 for Windows Azure appliances from SUSE Gallery, or you can roll your own from a 64-bit template.

Please note: Running VMs on Windows Azure is still a 'preview feature', so you'll need to enable Experimental Features on your Studio account in order to build to the Azure format.
