    This looks amazing. Does the backend scale automatically ? or does the backend notice heavily load, sent out an email, then you need to scale it?

    Also the 10 free hosted apps offer seems impossible. What are the restrictions with this ?

    Hi there--

    We don't currently support autoscaling or automatically trigger an email when you've hit a certain traffic load. You can easily scale in the portal when you see the need to, however, by dragging a slider.

    You do receive 10 free hosted apps. There are some associated capacity limitations that you can review on this page https://www.windowsazure.com/en-us/pricing/details/#header-0.  Apps in the free tier are capped at 165MB egress daily and can't run scheduled jobs more frequently than once every 15 minutes.
