Yesterday Windows Azure IAAS was announced public available by Scott Guthrie via his blog http://weblogs.asp.net/scottgu/archive/2013/04/16/windows-azure-general-availability-of-infrastructure-as-a-service-iaas.aspx.
Besides the word Preview has dropped on the portal, there are more new things available.
There are also new images added, like more versions of BizTalk 2013 and also a SharePoint 2013 image. The other images were already available during the preview.
Besides new images there are also other sizes of VM’s available. VM size with the name A6 and A7 with 28 and 56 Gb memory and 4 or 8 cores. What’s in a name 😉
But the Windows Azure Virtual Network is now also released from preview and public available. Which even more cooler.
Windows Azure is already a great platform, but now it is also a complete platform with PAAS, IAAS en SAAS altogether.
