Question about creating a L4D2 Server Through Azure

Cyber Ninja 1 Reputation point

What would all I need to install a L4D2 server trough Azure? Would it be able to be done with the 12 month free trial of azure and the resources it has without going over? Or if not what costs am i looking at if it does and then after the trial? Also what VM specifications would be good for a Left 4 Dead 2 server? Obviously 16gb is unnecessary. Any help is appreciated to get me on the right track here at Azure

    From memory the Azure trial is a 200$ credit to use.

    To give a approximate in the costing;

    I have a low-end Azure VM (4g ram and normal HDD) that I use for a small webserver, and it cost me around 60$/month.

    At that costing if you use the voucher I would guess you could run for 3 and a half months, but as I said it’s the bare minimum I have, if you need more ressource it can go over. I give that price for an estimate.
