Building a SharePoint 2019 MinRole Environment in Microsoft Azure – Prepping the Azure Environment for SharePoint 2019

So having finished my previous series where I explained how to install and configure a MinRole SP2019 environment on-premises, I wondered what was next.  Of course, let’s build out a SharePoint 2019 environment in Azure.  There are a couple of reasons I want to do this.  The main reason is many times businesses will want or need to maintain their data on-prem (or believe they do), but really don’t have any sort of setup for handling that.  Another great reason for hosting in Azure is to move support out your hands into someone else’s but still maintain great availability.  A final reason for myself is I wanted to set things up in Azure because my current personal system wasn’t large enough to handle a SharePoint 2019 MinRole environment.  So let’s start things off by prepping the environment for SharePoint 2019.
