This is awesome news for all our customers. Windows Azure IaaS is not GA. Great article by Scott providing details and there is a link to Bill Hilf’s article below with some great customer case studies.
This morning we announced the general availability release of our Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) support for Windows Azure – including our new Virtual Machine and Virtual Network capabilities. This release is now live in production, backed by an enterprise SLA, supported by Microsoft Support, and is ready to use for production apps. If you don’t already have a Windows Azure account, you can sign-up for a free trial and start using it today.
In addition to supporting all of the features and capabilities included during the preview, today’s IaaS release also includes some great new enhancements:
- New VM Image Templates (including SQL Server, BizTalk Server, and SharePoint images)
- New VM Sizes (including Larger Memory Machines)
- New VM Prices (we’ve reduced prices 21%-33% for IaaS and PaaS VMs)
Below are more details on today’s release and some of the new enhancements. You can also read Bill Hilf’s blog post to learn about some of the customers who are already using the IaaS capabilities in production.
