Curious about the concept behind WordPress on Windows Azure or why I’m so excited about hosting WordPress Networks on a Microsoft platform? Look no further than the presentation above from Make Web Not War 2011. In it I explain the premise and reasoning behind hosting WordPress Networks on Windows Azure along with some general principles around hosting large WordPress Networks. Your own private garden in the cloud? You bet.
Sadly the video doesn’t feature the slideshow presentation I created, but you can follow along in a separate window by navigating the slides on Prezi.com.
For a rundown on how to host WordPress on Azure with the new scaffolder solution which was introduced this fall, check out the full WordPress on Windows Azure: Single-Site Deployment tutorial.

However, this presentation deals with Windows Azure Companion which is no longer supported by Microsoft, see this link: http://blogs.msdn.com/b/jimoneil/archive/2010/09/19/windows-azure-companion-php-and-wordpress-in-azure.aspx. For running PHP on Azure see http://azurephp.interoperabilitybridges.com
You are correct in that there is a newer model for deploying WordPress on Azure, one which I have covered extensively in the tutorial listed below. However, this presentation is mainly about the philosophy and concepts surrounding hosting WordPress, and in particular WordPress Networks, on Azure. Though the methodology has matured, the reasoning behind stays the same.
