Announcing Windows Infrastructure Services General Availability

This is a major milestone for Windows Azure! We are excited to announce that Windows Azure Virtual Machines and Windows Azure Virtual Network now are generally available. These new services make it possible for you to move your applications into the cloud as is.

One point holds true in every discussion – the cloud should be an enabler for innovation, and an extension of your organization’s IT, not just a fancier way to describe cheap infrastructure and application hosting. This brief video shows what you can do with Windows Azure Infrastructure Services.

You’ve also told us that you want best-in-class performance at a low price. That’s why today we are also announcing a commitment to match Amazon Web Services prices for commodity services such as compute, storage and bandwidth. This starts with reducing our GA prices on Virtual Machines and Cloud Services by 21-33%.

You can find the general availability announcement and the price reduction details at Windows Azure Blog.
