Why Umbraco loves Windows Azure
Umbraco loves Windows Azure because it lets the user
focus on the experience not the infrastructure; gives every site a
global presence, places no limits on scale or growth, and has no
fixed costs. Nearly every site, no matter how modest, can take
advantage of the cloud with Windows Azure, and we think nearly
every site should.
The evolution of cloud computing now enables any Umbraco site to
take advantage of the Windows Azure platform. Windows Azure, and
the Windows Azure Accelerator for Umbraco, remove all concern
around infrastructure and management with an approach that "just
works." The Windows Azure approach works at any scale you need,
from a basic site requiring better than average availability, to
massively scaled sites serving millions of page views and terabytes
