Windows Azure is PaaS(Platform-as-a-Service) that allows you to install and manage your SharePoint environment on cloud like you do on premises. You will be charged based on the space and compute hours consumed by your SharePoint farm, Visual studio, TFS etc. Much VS debugging makes you pay more :-), hence development farm on Azure may be costly to ...

You can get an idea about where your Office 365 data is stored at Microsoft Online Services - Where is my data? According to that your data is probably in the region closest to where the admin stated the company resided. If you're using CSOM (Client Side Object Model) from server code then you should probably place your App in the same region. But if your ...

The best region would be whatever is closest to you. As far as I know, these are the general locations of the Azure data centers: North Central US – Chicago South Central US – San Antonio West US – California East US – Virginia So if you are rolling a provider hosted app in Azure, you'd want to tie your Azure servers to the region that is closest to you.

For me: Recycle time (time from recycle or IISRESET until we actually get a SharePoint page). That is the biggest culprit with developing for SP 2013 for me personally. Also, the perceived experience with debugging a solution (since it tends to time-out...) would be nice. No idea how to quantify that to a metric though.

The scenarios you could use with SharePoint are: Save the database file in SharePoint itself and check it in and out when you're using it just like you'd do with any other file. This is kind of rickety and SP isn't really going to do a great job of telling you what changes you made, but it's possible, I guess. Use Access Services to, in essence, host the ...

I don't see why not. I havn't tried myself, but as long as you put your VMs and storage accounts in same affinity group, I would assume that Azure's internal disks are fast enough to be wihtin the 20ms latency requirement, but a test would be the only way to know for sure. Also be sure to look into striping your disks if you want to obtain good IOPS. Read ...

This issue can sometimes (every time in my experience) be addressed by running the "Refresh Trusted Security Token Services Metadata feed" -- just look under "Timer Jobs" under "Monitoring" in Central Administration.

After 5+ (!) weeks investigating this with MS tech support, we finally determined that the Windows Service "Performance Logs & Alerts" was set as Disabled startup type.
