New Azure Virtualization Features Offer More Development, Demo Options for Microsoft Dynamics CRM
This spring Microsoft released some important changes to Windows Azure including Azure Web Sites and the new deployment model for xRM Portals or extensions as well as Azure Virtual Machines where companies can set up development or demo Dynamics CRM environments running in the cloud.
"There's a Metro UI-style dashboard and an HTML 5 interface with no Silverlight, so you get a better administration interface that will be able to support many of our mobile platforms as well," said Shan McArthur of Adxstudio, at a recent online meeting of the xRM Virtual User Group. "Other new features include Windows Azure Web Sites and Azure Virtual Machines."
"The really cool thing is the portal technology," McArthur said.
