Download: Windows Azure Tools for Microsoft Visual Studio and SDK

In our blog, we’ve already discussed about Windows Azure as it a cloud service operating system and it serves us as the development service hosting and service management environment for the Windows Azure Platform. From Windows Azure, the developers can have on-demand compute and storage of host, scale and it enables us to manage Web applications on the internet through Microsoft data centers.
Windows Azure is an open environment that supports both Microsoft and non-Microsoft languages and environments. In order to build applications and services on Windows Azure, we can use our existing Microsoft Visual Studio expertise. At the same time, Windows Azure supports popular standards and protocols comprising SOAP, REST and XML.

We can use Windows Azure for followings:
•    We can easily add Web service capabilities to the existing packaged applications.
•    It lets us build, modify and distribute applications to the Web with minimal on-premises resources.
•    We can perform services (large-volume storage, batch processing, intense or large-volume computations, etc.) off premises
•    Using Windows Azure, we can create, test, debug, and distribute Web services quickly and inexpensively
•    We can reduce the effort and costs of IT management
•    It lets us reduce costs of building and extending on-premises resources.
