Need a Server? Build it in the cloud for free

       

Windows Azure Infrastructure as a Services are READY FOR PRODUCTION USE!

We’ve been talking about Windows Azure virtual machines, and using Azure as “Infrastructure-as-a-Service” (IaaS) for many months now.  We’ve been promoting the heck out of the 90-day free trial of Windows Azure to IT Pros all over the world; but with the caveat that the capability to create (or upload) virtual machines with persistent storage and high availability up in Windows Azure datacenters was still “in preview”.  Well, the preview is at an end.  We’ve “shipped” it! 

Starting today, Windows Azure Infrastructure Services are ready for production.

“I can start using it in a supported way, for my production workloads?”

Yes.  You have my permission.  And Microsoft’s.
