    Hi Spectrum Community,
    I sell Microsoft for IBM and we have a large FSS client that is asking about our plans for Spectrum on Azure. Any information, contacts, or knowedge/opinions welcome.
    Thank You!

    LSF Resource Connector (RC) can be used to work with Azure to provision vm instance as LSF server node in Azure.

    Hi Ken,

    Spectrum Symphony aligns well with FSS SOA type workloads, and as Sun Yi mentions, Spectrum LSF is also integrated with Azure:

    For Spectrum Symphony, Azure is also supported though Host Factory.
