RECOMMENDATION: To increase performance, we recommend that you locate your hosted service, storage account, and database server in the same data center.
The storage account is optional and is used for the following purposes:
You can deploy an already existing project or create a new project locally and then deploy it.
NOTE: When you configure the new project, on the database configuration screen, select Microsoft SQL Server to work locally. Later, you will migrate the local database to SQL Azure.
If your existing project is not in the Project Manager, you must add it. For more information, see Work with Sitefinity CMS Project Manager.
RECOMMENDATION: Before proceeding further, we recommend you to remove the project from the Project Manager or the IIS, because after the DataConfig.config is changed (as described below) using the website locally will actually modify your production SQL Azure database.
