In what type of environment would this server be located? Datacenter
If your server is located in your personal home, please specify the name of your Internet Service Provider (ISP).
If your server is located in a Datacenter, please specify the name of the company hosting it. Azure
Do you have past experience deploying hardware servers in a datacenter? If I understand correctly, then without any problems using commands for Linux through the console, I install the main node, configure the ports and that's it.
Do you already own sufficient hardware to meet the published xx network BetaNet Node specifications? D1s – 5s v2 Dsv2 series virtual machines are powered by Intel® Xeon® Platinum 8272CL (2nd Generation Intel® Xeon® Scalable Processors), Intel® Xeon® 8171M (Skylake) 2.1 GHz, Intel® Xeon® E5-2673 v4 ( Broadwell) @ 2.3 GHz or Intel® Xeon® E5-2673 v3 (Haswell) @ 2.4 GHz with Intel Turbo Boost 2.0 technology and support premium SSD storage. Dsv2 instances are a balanced mix of vCPUs, local disks, and memory size. These virtual machines are suitable for most workloads in your production environment. The Dsv2 series uses the same virtual machine pricing and billing counters as the Dv2 series
Do you have hardware you would like to use but does not meet the stated BetaNet node specs? If so, please provide specs on that hardware below:

Yes, all details and specs can be found on page 3-4 of Beta Node Handbook

If you aren’t going to use a GPU, be aware that between now and MainNet a CPU with at least 40+ threads will be required. In the long run we calculate it will be less expensive to build a GPU node. See handbook.
