Windows Azure with its data centers around the world and its Traffic Manager is perfect for a website that requires load balancing and/or geo-targeting.

CMS with its integration with Windows Azure allows you to have a solution where you have a website running, for example, locally on WebMatrix and "push" changes on this "source" website to its multiple online "clone" instances on Windows Azure.

You can ensure this synchronization with the Azure Publisher package installed on your source website.

Azure Publisher enables you to publish the changes to your multiple website instances on Windows Azure provided that these instances in the cloud are "read only" or have Azure-aware code.

Besides, Azure Publisher allows developers to hook their own custom code into the publish flow and modify configuration files, allowing for more advanced publish features.

Additional features of Azure Publisher

  • Advanced Publisher 

    Apart from a simple version of Azure Publisher, you can also use the Advanced Publisher (right-click on "Windows Azure Publisher" | "Open Advanced Publisher"). It gives you more detailed status and progress information as well as allows you to download the website from Windows Azure.

  • Blob change log

    Besides, you can check the change log of the blob (right-click on "Windows Azure Publisher" | "Blob change log").

  • Downloading a website from Windows Azure


    Azure Publisher allows you to download the website from Windows Azure and run it on a host of your choice. In this way you can set up a "staging" copy of a website from Windows Azure, for example, locally on WebMatrix or IIS.
