    Does IBM support hosting Connect Direct in the Microsoft Azure Cloud?
    it has been 2 years since this was posted,
    is it supported now?

    C:D Windows 4.8.0 and 6.0.0 have been certified for Microsoft Windows Server 2016 and for Microsoft SQL Server 2016. Please see the Release Notes for details.

    The Release Notes also have a dedicated section on Virtualization support, which covers how OS images are typically running in the cloud. C:D Windows is certified on Windows OS plattform level.

    Already exists? As well?

    C:D Windows certified for Azure or Google Cloud? Where can I find this details on documentation?

    The only information about Cloud that We have is about CDU and moreover only at AWS.

    "Release 5.3.0 of CDU only supports Amazon Web Services, it does not yet support MS Azure, Google Cloud and IBM SoftLayer."
