Microsoft delivers new Windows Azure updates

Here is a highlight of some of the new features now available;

Database Manager for SQL (GA)
Windows Azure Marketplace (beta)
Windows Azure Virtual Network Connect (CTP)
Extra Small Windows Azure Instance (Beta)
Remote Desktop General Availability
Elevated Privileges General Availability
Full IIS Support General Availability:
Windows Server 2008 R2 Roles General Availability
Multiple Admins General Availability

In order to use these new features, you will need to download and install the new Azure SDK which can be found here – http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkID=128752. Once you do that, open up the project in Visual Studio and a conversion process should kick off.

I’ll be updating our Azure hosted website in the next day or so and blogging about some of the additional features in more detail.
