What is Microsoft Windows Azure?

Microsoft Windows Azure is an operating system that serves as the development, run-time, and control environment, is a part of a set of new and existing technologies behind the cloud computing Azure Services Platform, a development and execution platform that runs end-user and corporate software on Microsoft’s own servers, accessible over the web. Microsoft launched its Windows Azure software development kit and Windows Azure tools which supports these developing and deploying platform services containing multiple web and worker roles.

ISHIR is leading software consulting organization specializing in using and developing on Windows Azure SDK ServicesSQL Azure Database (SADB), .NET Entity Framework, ADO.NET Data Services, Microsoft Synchronization Framework, SQL Server 2005+, SQL Server CE, .NET database, and Web services projects.

If you want to learn more how you can get the capabilities of Microsoft Azure SQL Services very quickly, with little capital investment, without the need for supporting new IT infrastructure please fill in the form and The Windows Azure SDK contains tools, libraries and samples which are used to build a service consisting of one or more web roles and/or asynchronous worker roles, test the service in the development fabric, and package the service for deployment to Windows Azure. We can also build and run services hosted in the development fabric that employ the Blob, Queue, and Table services, and test them locally against development storage. Windows Azure SDK libraries can be used in the development storage services for the Blob, Queue, and Table services from a client application that is not hosted in the development Windows Azure fabric.

The Windows Azure SDK provides developers with the APIs, tools, documentation, and samples needed to develop Internet-scale applications that run on Windows Azure.

Windows Azure Tools from Microsoft enable the development, building, debugging, running and packaging of scalable custom web applications and services on Windows Azure with enhanced robustness and stability. Azure service may contain zero or more web roles and zero or more worker roles with a minimum of one role of either type. Windows Azure tools provides developer an on-demand compute and storage capabilities to host, scale, and manage web applications on the internet through Microsoft data centers and provide support for building Cloud Services from TFS Build. It has ability to associate any ASP.NET Web Application project in a Cloud Service solution as a Web Role.
