Last month, I published the first of a two part guide published on TechNet entitled Configuring a SQL Azure Sync Group which demonstrated the steps for configuring two SQL Azure databases to replicate using SQL Azure Sync. I’m still working away on the second part of the guide which I promised however to keep you all as excited about Microsoft Azure as I am in the mean time, I’ve just published a guide entitled Configuring a Microsoft Azure CDN on the TechNet Gallery.
Today, I noticed that the site popped offline whilst I was working on something, the issue being what I was doing in the back-end of WordPress generated a bit of load which then tripped the Shared instance resources counter. I logged into the Microsoft Azure Management Portal, ready to increase the site level to Standard to notice that the Scale options for a Web Site have now changed, another new feature in Microsoft Azure Web Sites.
Continuing with my line of Windows Azure posts of late, I wanted to unearth a feature called Windows Azure Web Sites Always On.
