BizTalk Server 2016 Azure VM image now available!

For those of you that missed our announcements here and here, BizTalk Server 2016 has been released to manufacturing (RTM) today! What does this mean? Well, we now go through the process of making the media available across all channels which takes a little time to complete. But we know you can't wait for all that so if you want to get started right now, we've already released the Enterprise Edition gallery image here in Azure. It should also be appearing at http://portal.azure.com within the next 24 hours. Find out more about BizTalk Server 2016 here.

And of course, I have to mention Host Integration Server 2016 also reached RTM with us today as well. Read more on the HIS blog here.

We're incredibly excited to reach this milestone and the possibilities you've already been telling us it enables. Share your stories and projects with us - we'd love to hear them!
