I know SP2013 Online will not work for public sites - I work for education with many public sites in our SP farm. But if we wanted to go online and not be on-prem anymore, would it work with a Azure server loaded with SP2013 or 2016?


Yes, but that's just running SharePoint On-Prem in Azure IaaS (VMs). Fairly expensive on a month-to-month basis, but certainly supported.

  • And we would still be able to host the public sites that way? Arguably, it would be cheaper going on-prem, but the powers at-be are wanting a redundant solution as we just went through a hurricane and had damage done to our NOC..... – Vicky Spence Oct 12 '17 at 19:11
  • Yes, you'd still be able to host public sites as you're running SharePoint On-Prem, just happens to be on a different virtualization platform. – Trevor Seward Oct 12 '17 at 19:12
