Microsoft Dynamics 365 Blog

On behalf of the Microsoft Dynamics 365 engineering team, I am pleased to announce the release of a white paper, Microsoft Dynamics CRM 2016 Service Pack 1 Performance Benchmark on Azure (IaaS) which is currently available for download, from the Microsoft Download Center. It is one of the publications, as promised in the Dynamics 365 Team blog a few weeks ago.

This whitepaper provides a benchmark for performance of Microsoft Dynamics CRM 2016 SP1 and explains the configuration, topology, optimizations, data profile, and test workload used. It also demonstrates the scalability and performance of Microsoft Dynamics CRM 2016 SP1 on standard “off the shelf” Azure Virtual Machines.  We believe that this whitepaperwill benefit a significant number of enterprises that are still considering or evaluating to migrate their on-premises CRM instances to cloud.

We’d like to recognize the efforts of Matt Brown, Grant Geiszler, Brandon Kelly, Aditya Varma, Matt Peart and the broader CRM Product Group for contributing to and reviewing this paper to help ensure its completeness and accuracy.

We would love to hear your feedback.
