We are getting pretty close to the commercial release of the Windows Azure Platform at Microsoft’s Professional Developers Conference in November.
We recently released a set of PowerShell cmdlets that you can use to automate the management of your Windows Azure applications. Using these cmdlets you can add or remove an existing deployment. You can also upgrade an application or part of an application.
These cmdlets also allow you to scale your application up or down based on measurements that you consider to be important, such as the depth of a work queue or other significant real-time measurement.
You can find out more here.
