Alternatively you can upload your own Windows image by doing these steps.

1 - upload your VHD disk to Azure (https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/virtual-machines/windows/prepare-for-upload-vhd-image)
2 - create a VM from your VHD disk (https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/virtual-machines/windows/create-vm-specialized-portal)

Have a look at this page for more details https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/2721672/microsoft-server-software-support-for-microsoft-azure-virtual-machines. Depends on which version your are looking for, Microsoft does not support operating systems that are past their End of Support date.

Azure only provide DataCenter edition of windows server. I'd expect if it can run on Standard edition it should also run on DataCenter

another option may be to use Windows !0 Pro

Oh I don't doubt it won't run on Datacenter, my only problem is when I have to call support, I will be told "Sorry, can't help you, you installed it on an unsupported platform"
