Uploading and Mounting ISO for Windows Cloud-server

So a customer came with the question today on the process of uploading an ISO to a cloud-server. It’s a relatively easy process. RDP allows you to use resource sharing, that effectively mounts on the server you RDP to, your remote filesystem of your choice. This is the manner in which you can upload the file easily.

Once you have the ISO on the server you simply need to mount the disk with a software to present it as an ordinary CD/DVD disk. I personally use Elaborate Bytes’ Virtual Clone Drive.

Yeah, I know it’s simple to us, but other people might find this useful. Exact same question came up today 😀
