Finally it’s all up and running! Took about 7 hours for the DNS to sync so Azure would approve my domain names. On parental leave with my son Rufus so things aren’t as speedy as they used to be…
I was really surprised today when I was doing research that we support a number of products running in Azure VMs. I owe my colleague a lunch, but I’m happy both for him and for our customers. The published article is a “fast publish” and you can find it at http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2721672.
Now I’ll try to run WDS in Azure and see how many I can deploy 😉
Ah, no more setting up internal demo enviroments worrying about if it’ll be up once you’re going to demo it. No more worrying about “colleagues” reconfiguring stuff while your busy preparing slides. Now Microsoft launches virtual machines in Azure, and you can connect those to your internal environment too. Or just upload your own VHD to Azure if you don’t want to use the preconfigured ones.

For those of you who saw mine and Roberts keynote at TechDays 2010 in Örebro this Wednesday you know that we talked about Azure. The datacenters location are like I mentioned previously more or less unknown. But Mary-Jo Foley apparently has better sources than me and has a slide showing the locations of the centers.
As you can read in her article the locations are as shown in this picture:
