Is there any way by which I can mine Monero or other altcoins using Azure Cloud Services.
Sure - you can run cpuminer-multi on Azure or AWS, and it will CPU mine. You will need to find a pool to mine with.
Alternatively, if you want to solo mine, then you merely need to run a full Monero node, and from within
bitmonerod you use the
start_mining command. Details on the options you can pass to that command are available via the
help command within
With the new N-Series VMs, you can now mine more: https://medium.com/@benthompson2001/mining-bitcoin-other-altcoins-with-azure-n-series-gpu-virtual-machines-e8591895baba#.67rl6apt1
