    The Discussion

      Very cool!

      I've setup a separate website just to run a couple of web jobs to do some file processing that occurs on a frequent process during the day -- so I'm not concerned with the jobs affecting website performance because the website is only to serve these jobs.  The jobs process two large files and takes about 6 minutes in total to run (4 minutes for one file and 2 minutes for the other).  The question I have is, at which point is a job too large for "web jobs" and should be moved into something like a worker role?

      Thanks to Scott for keeping this episode easy to follow ("whoa, whoa... what zip file!") :)

      For developers who want to schedule node.js files, the Mobile Services Scheduler is also still an option (and probably cheaper).
