After you determine your configuration options, you must set up your virtual machines using a ThoughtSpot image for Azure.

About the ThoughtSpot image

To provision ThoughtSpot in the Azure portal, access the ThoughtSpot Virtual Machine in the Azure Marketplace.

The ThoughtSpot Virtual Machine comes provisioned with the custom ThoughtSpot image to make hosting simple. A virtual machine is a preconfigured template that provides the information required to launch an instance of ThoughtSpot. It includes a root disk for the instance, which contains an operating system, application server, and other necessary software.
