Question: What are the benefits of using Windows Azure cloud services? Answer: You can use Windows Azure cloud services to enable Microsoft to manage the entire application. If the application fails on the cloud, Windows Azure cloud services allow you to move the application to other VMs. The following list summarizes the benefits of cloud services: Cloud services provide administrative access to the VM of your application. This access allows you install software that your application needs. Cloud services offer both web-role and worker-role VMs, which is better for multi-tier applications that need separate VMs for their business logic. Cloud services provide separate staging and production environments that allow developers to fully test the application before delivery to ensure that the application is fully functional. Cloud services support the use of Windows Azure Virtual Network and Windows Azure Connect.
