[News] WordPress demo working on Azure
At PDC Matt Mullenweg demonstrated an self hosted WordPress install running on Azure. Seemed very strange to see on of the nets largest LAMP apps running on Azure.
Microsoft has made big leaps in the past few years with running PHP and even MySQL on IIS. The WordPress installation Mullenweg demonstrated was running on Apache, MySQL, and PHP. Whilst Mullenweg said there were no plans to move WordPress.com (the hosted WordPress service) to Azure he did say the they were testing Azure for blob storage.
