The Intel EMA Cloud Start Tool for Azure enables the automated creation of an Intel EMA instance with a basic configuration and all required background services in the Microsoft Azure Cloud. Downloadable scripts for local installations or to other cloud vendors are available here 

Intel partners with software vendors to integrate with Intel EMA to enable control of Intel vPro manageability features. Step-by-step guides for integration and use of the Intel EMA Cloud Start tools are available at msp.intel.com/navigator

The Intel EMA Cloud Start Tool for Azure requires an active Microsoft Azure account with permissions to create a Windows server VM. You are responsible for all costs and maintenance of Azure services. 

The links below will open an Azure template where you will create the Intel EMA administrator credentials, server name, etc. A Virtual Machine in Microsoft Azure* with all necessary background services and a default configuration of Intel EMA will be created. Note: The Cloud Start tools create new instances of the current Intel EMA version and cannot be used to upgrade existing installations. The server and database options offered below are intended for low-cost evaluation purposes and may use OS and database configurations that are not currently supported. Please see the Intel EMA Administration and Usage Guide <linked below> for fully supported configurations. 

Please allow up to 30 minutes for the build operation to complete.

Advanced users may wish to customize the setup scripts for their Azure environment: The Azure template and installation scripts package is available for download here
