Weâ€™ve been talking about Windows Azure virtual machines, and using Azure as â€śInfrastructure-as-a-Serviceâ€ť (IaaS) for many months now. Weâ€™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 â€śin previewâ€ť. Well, the preview is at an end. Weâ€™ve â€śshippedâ€ť it!
Starting today, Windows Azure Infrastructure Services are ready for production.
â€śI can start using it in a supported way, for my production workloads?â€ť
Yes. You have my permission. And Microsoftâ€™s.
