    @imgen Azure is available in China though there are no data centers located in PRC. There are dcs however in Hong Kong which is very nearby. The signup experience though to use those DCs in Hong Kong is not at all ideal.

    You're intentionally confusing us, as now we believe you are still in China! Wink

    I would imagine data centers are suspicious for the Peoples Republic of China ~ tricksey Yanks...

    Ha ha. No I am not still there, I mean i never left Microsoft or my team. I just worked over there for 3 months.

    No comments on the data centers....

    I am happy to say that people I spoke to were very open to the idea of Azure. Many had no idea though that we even care about OSS/PHP the stacks they care about.
