Microsoft Azure Cloud Service is Microsoft’s Platform as a Service (PaaS) offering. This video describes how to create your own app and then deploy and manage it within a Windows Azure datacenter. We’ll talk about billing, using the Compute Emulator for free testing and debugging. Then, we’ll talk about managing the virtual machines’ lifetime including how to configure the VMs using import modules and startup tasks, and your app role entry point.
