In this episode, Brady welcomes Yochay Kiriaty onto the show to introduce a great addition to the Windows Azure Web Sites platform—new support to Windows Azure Web Sites for the .NET Framework 4.5. This adds support for asynchronous ASP.NET, enhanced functionality resident in the Entity Framework 5 release (like support for spatial data), and other great features. Yochay also walks through a demonstration of load-testing Windows Azure Web Sites using WCAT, and differentiates the various hosting tiers—free, shared, and reserved. In the demo, you'll gain some insight into the heavy load your sites can achieve, and you'll be better informed about which tier you'll need to use based on the capacity needs for your site.
