@MayurS21 , with Azure Platform do you mean a virtual machine (VM) on Azure?

Then the upgrade is the same as on-premise; install the new version.

 

Yes, VM on Azure.
Can I perform in place upgrade same like on premise? is there any special pre or post checks need to perform as it is azure platform?

There is really no differences between an on-premise server and a VM in the cloud, it's absolutly the same; where do you see any differences?
