Deploying Dremio on Azure

Dremio for an Azure deployment creates a coordinator and executor nodes that are associated with the selected cluster size.


An Azure portal account is required to deploy Dremio on Azure.

This link is associated with Dremio’s Azure template: Evaluate via Azure ARM

Step 2: Log in to Azure

Log in using your Azure portal account (if you’re not already logged in).

Step 3: Configure the Dremio Deployment

To configure the Dremio deployment:

  1. Provide values for the configuration parameters.
  2. Check the Terms and Conditions box.
  3. Click Purchase.

Resource Group parameter

It is recommended that you create a new resource group. Deleting a resource group deletes all the resources in it (and hence all the resources created by this template).

Cluster Size parameter

Based on the cluster size, the following machine types and number of executor nodes are implemented. Note that the cost of your Azure deployment depends on the selected cluster size.

X-Small Standard_D4_v3 Standard_E16s_v3 1
Small Standard_D4_v3 Standard_E16s_v3 5
Medium Standard_D8_v3 Standard_E16s_v3 10
Large Standard_D8_v3 Standard_E16s_v3 25

If password is used, it must have as a minimum:

  • Eight (8) characters

  • The subnet must be in the same location as the Dremio cluster resource group.
  • The subnet must be of the following form: /subscriptions/xxxx/resourceGroups/xxxx/providers/Microsoft.Network/virtualNetworks/xxxx/subnets/xxxx

Step 4: Connect to Dremio
