Windows Azure Web Jobs - the new way to run your workloads in the Cloud
The new Web Job in the Windows Azure Platforms allows you to run background workloads easily and effortlessly as support for your Windows Azure Web Sites or other web-facing assets. The service has powerful monitoring and logging capabilities built into the Windows Azure Portal allowing you full control of what jobs have executed, are executing and will execute. Another very tasty fact about Web Jobs is that they may be programmed without any knowledge of the Cloud paradigm at all enabling any developer to build them in C#, PHP or as a simple command script. Deploying and monitoring Web Jobs is an operations task which allows for good separation between dev and ops.
