Microsoft Enhances Windows Azure

Microsoft released another massive set of enhancements to Windows Azure.  The New capabilities include:
  • Storage: Import/Export Hard Disk Drives to your Storage Accounts with built-in support for BitLocker disk encryption
  • HDInsight: General Availability of our Hadoop Service in the cloud
  • Virtual Machines: New VM Gallery, ACL support for VIPs
  • Web Sites: WebSocket and Remote Debugging Support
  • Notification Hubs: Segmented customer push notification support with tag expressions
  • TFS & GIT: Continuous Delivery Support for Web Sites + Cloud Services
  • Developer Analytics: New Relic support for Web Sites + Mobile Services
  • Service Bus: Support for partitioned queues and topics
  • Billing: New Billing Alert Service that sends emails notifications when your bill hits a threshold you define
Storage is very interesting for our clients who may need to import/export large set of data in/out of Windows Azure.  The Windows Azure Import/Export Service enables you to move large amounts of on-premises data into and out of your Windows Azure Storage accounts. It does this by enabling you to securely ship hard disk drives directly to our Windows Azure data centers. Once we receive the drives we’ll automatically transfer the data to or from your Windows Azure Storage account.  This enables you to import or export massive amounts of data more quickly and cost effectively (and not be constrained by available network bandwidth).
