Windows Azure has now 10.000 customers and you might think ok but do I really need to build an application myself or isn’t there some app available I just download the application package for an run it in the cloud? Yes, there is!
Microsoft Germany puts together a list of applications and tools a new Azure Gallery:
I have reviewed the apps and tools listed there and even added a few
of my own favorite ones:
a) Use Windows Azure Storage as an encrypted network drive with Gladient Cloud Tools
b) Run Wordpress on Azure
c) Get a Cash-Register for your business or home-business
d) Use Windows Azure based MonitorGrid Solution to monitor your home server
e) Use a Collaboration Software in the Cloud
f) Search E-Books on Windows Azure
g) Mapping Solution for Windows Azure
h) Find Friends via Bluehoo Mobile App
According to Microsoft also Umbraco now runs on Azure. I am waiting to get the download.
