This morning we announced the general availability release of our Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) support for Windows Azure – including our new Virtual Machine and Virtual Network capabilities.  This release is now live in production, backed by an enterprise SLA, supported by Microsoft Support, and is ready to use for production apps.  If you don’t already have a Windows Azure account, you can sign-up for a free trial and start using it today.
