Windows Azure Auto-Scaling Plugin


NOTE: The wp-admin interface for this plugin still needs some sprucing up.
I (blobaugh) no longer have access to Windows Azure to continue improvement. If you need this plugin consider contributing to it, or getting me another Windows Azure subscription to continue development.

The Windows Azure cloud platform provides some very powerful scaling ability,
however natively Windows Azure does not know how to scale applications.
This plugin teaches WordPress how to scale your website on the Windows Azure
platform and take advantage of the full power of the cloud.


This section describes how to install the plugin and get it working.


  1. Upload the plugin folder to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory
  2. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress
  3. Configure the settings and watch the scaling powerhouse begin


This plugin is not working for me!

Apologies. More development work needs to be done, however I (blobaugh) no longer have access to a Windows Azure subscription. If you would like to use this plugin consider either contributing code to give it more awesome-sauce, or get me a Windows Azure subscription that I can continue development with.
