You are now able to set up an instance of Yellowfin for Azure quickly and easily, aiding in evaluation setup. This offer includes:

  • Ready to go Azure deployment: Yellowfin with all of its tutorial content to demonstrate reports, dashboards, and storyboards.
  • Free 1 Year licence for 3 users: the licence is designed to allow you to full evaluate the system, allowing you to buy once you've ticked all the boxes.


Azure Marketplace

1. Log in to Azure (you will need to register for an account if you don't already have one)

6. Create your Yellowfin for Azure VM by entering the following credentials:

    • Host Name - the name you are calling your VM
    • User Name - this user name is for access to the VM (this is not your Yellowfin user name)
    • Authentication Type - you can select either Password or SSH Public Key, or both, to access the VM. If you select Password then you must provide a password for the VM (this is not your Yellowfin password).
    • Pricing Tier - select which VM hardware you would like Yellowfin installed on
    • Optional Configuration - define further network, storage, or diagnostic settings if required
    • Resource Group - these allow you to manage all your resources in an application together. Create a new Resource Group or choose an existing one.
    • Subscription - this option defaults to Pay-As-You-Go
    • Location - select your preferred location (we recommend choosing the closest option to where your users are located in order to reduce network latency)
