interopFour new Drupal Modules now run on Windows Azure. The modules join Drupal 7 that now runs on Windows.

The new modules include Bing Maps, Windows Live ID, OData, and Silverlight Pivot Viewer that can be used with Drupal running on Windows Azure.

The Drupal modules are deployed on Windows Azure with the Windows Azure Companion allow Drupal administrators/developers to provide their users with new features:

  • The Bing Maps Module for Drupal provides for easy & flexible embedding of Bing Map in Drupal content types, such as a technical article or story.
  • The Windows Live ID Module for Drupal allows Drupal user to associate their Drupal account to their Windows Live ID, and then to login on Drupal with their Windows Live ID.
  • The OData Module for Drupal allows developers to include data sources based on OData in Drupal content types. The generic module includes a basic OData query builder and renders data in a simple HTML Table. In this case, we are taking the Netflix OData catalog and using a simple visual query engine, generating a filtered query to display on our Drupal “Article” page.
  • The Silverlight Pivot viewer Module for Drupal enables enables easy & flexible embedding of Silverlight PivotViewer in Drupal content types, using a set of preconfigured data sources like oData producers or existing Pivot collections

The modules are developed by Schakra and Mindtree.
