The July 2009 Community Technology Previews (CTPs) of the Windows Azure Tools for Microsoft Visual Studio and the included Windows Azure Software Development Kit (SDK) are now available on the Microsoft Download Center.
Windows Azure Tools for Microsoft Visual Studio extend Visual Studio 2008 and Visual Studio 2010 Beta 1 to enable the creation, building, debugging, running and packaging of scalable web applications and services on Windows Azure.
Windows Azure launches in November 2009.
