Worker role and VM cloud service

    Question

  • Can a worker role exist in the same cloud service as a VM? or in the same cloud service as a SQL Azure DB?

    thanks

  • Work role include instances, they are VM.

    You can remote login. But if you want to use it as a SQL, I don't think it's a good idea.

    Because, when the instance freeze, the Azure fabric will create a new instance instead, 

    the data you store in that instance will lost.

  • not sure if i am following your question 100%, 

    if your question is can you have worker role, vm and sql azure db in same "subscription", then Yes you most certainly can.

    if your question is can you have the said component in the same deployment, then "Yes" can most certainly have

  • It is not possible for a cloud service to contain web/worker roles and VM roles. Furthermore, SQL Azure is a service that does not run in the context of a cloud service.
