Life in the Fast Lane: Rapidly Deploy Umbraco CMS on Windows Azure
Umbraco is a developer friendly, open-source CMS that is built 100% on .NET. Today Umbraco powers over 85,000 sites. Now deploying Umbraco sites to the cloud with the Windows Azure Platform is also fast and easy. Using the Windows Azure Accelerator for Umbraco it is simple to deploy our pre-configured cloud-drive image along with local SQL Server (and SQL Express) database schema and data to SQL Azure. What’s more, we can use the support for Full IIS in Windows Azure to host multiple Umbraco instances on a single Windows Azure instance – thereby reducing the costs to run Umbraco sites in a scalable and highly available cloud environment. In addition you will hear about some real-world Umbraco users that have leveraged the Windows Azure Accelerator for Umbraco to create a repeatable cloud-deployment process that saves them time and makes deployment a breeze.
