Can Smarter Stats run on Azure?
Question asked by Frank Fisher - 4/27/2016 at 2:36 AM

We want to migrate several sites to Azure but still get the same kind of analytics we have with a conventional server - is it possible to somehow grab Azure logs with smarter stats? Anyone done this?

Hey Frank,

Thanks for reaching out with your question. While SmarterStats can be run on an Azure platform, one thing you need to ensure is that you keep a static IP address. If your environment isn't set up correctly, your outbound IP address can change and your install could potentially lose activation because of this. Azure actually addressed the reported issue regarding static outbound IP's with their App Service environments for Premium service plan holders. More information on that environment can be found here: 

 
I hope this helps!

Side note: Aside from this, your setup should work the same. You'll just have to ensure you have access to your logs for SmarterStats to pull in.

That's very helpful, thanks - I'll pass this on to our Azure people and see if they can set things up
