Setup bitcore on Microsoft Azure

Are there any guides for getting bitcore setup on Azure? I saw the blog post about Microsoft’s Blockchain-as-a-Service (Baas) being an easy way to run bitcore:

I’m new to Azure, so just looking for some guides.

Here’s a button that didn’t work: https://github.com/Azure/azure-quickstart-templates/tree/master/bitcore-centos-vm

This might be better asked in an Azure forum.

A followup question: does the node start pre-loaded with the blockchain, or do I need to sync from scratch?
