The New Windows Azure

Windows Azure was updated this past week. This update includes a new Metro-style admin portal, new types of virtual machines (like Linux), new Azure Web Sites and more. From the Windows Azure Blog it looks like you can deploy up to 10 websites for free in a multi-tenant environment. You can upgrade to a dedicated VM at any time if you need more resources for your web site. From the blog post:

“Windows Azure now allows you to deploy up to 10 web-sites into a free, shared/multi-tenant hosting environment (where a site you deploy will be one of multiple sites running on a shared set of server resources).  This provides an easy way to get started on projects at no cost.”
