This topic describes the requirements for cloud-compatible software, tools and services used when working with Episerver Digital Experience Cloud Service. This information is useful to ensure that your development environment is compatible with the deployment process and the Azure resources.
Previous knowledge of cloud-based development, and Microsoft Azure in particular, is valuable to get the most out of DXC Service. See Microsoft Azure to learn more.
Note: You can only run one Web Application (ASP.NET Web Application project) in your DXC Service solution, however you can have unlimited number of sites in that application.
Note: To ensure maximum availability and scaling flexibility, Episerver Find uses dynamic IP ranges. For example, if you require whitelisting of IP addresses in the firewall, make sure that your firewall supports domain-based whitelisting.
The following overview shows the minimum required versions for Episerver products and modules, and tools and services for deploying to the Integration environment. See Installing Episerver updates for information about upgrading Episerver solutions.

The following features are not supported within Episerver DXC Service:
You can deploy either using deployment tools for a version controlled team development environment, or through Visual Studio using the Episerver extensions and publish profiles. You can use any deployment tool that supports Azure Resource Manager (ARM); see Deploying code changes for more information.
Note: You must install add-on modules to the Integration environment through Visual Studio to work with the DXC Service deployment process. Do not change the default configuration that disables users from installing to production.
