How to deploy an website in windows azure

I have a website that's in 2.0. How to deploye in azure?


You question is very vague due to the fact that now there are three way you can deploy your ASP.NET website to Windows Azure. :

  1. Windows Azure Web Sites:

    This is in preview phase and released very recently. You can create a free website by signing up to Windows Azure Preview and create upto 10 free shared websites using the information provided below:

  2. Windows Azure Virtual Machine:

    In this method you create your own Virtual Machine with IIS and then deploy your ASP.NET application directly to it. The Virtual Machine is persisted so anything you will deploy to your virtual machine will persist.

  3. Windows Azure Web Role

    This is the PaaS based Windows Azure Cloud service where you can deploy to your application directly to Windows Azure cloud using Windows Azure SDK as described below:

As there is lot of information above and you might be overwhelm, I would suggest just stick with the option #1. Signup for Windows Azure Preview and create your "Windows Azure Website" and start from there.
