Windows Azure SQL Database Marketplace
Earlier this month, we released our first preview of Windows Azure SDK for Node.js. So far the community reaction has been positive and feedback is starting to trickle in with feature requests, bugs, etc. We’re listening and really appreciate the feedback, so keep it coming.
Staying true to our commitment to release early and often and in keeping with the holiday tradition, we bring you a gift - the December update.
Highlights of this preview:
Enabling Remote Desktop access the easy way
Remote Desktop allows you to connect directly to your VMs. It’s very useful in particular for debugging and diagnostics. In our previous preview, to enable RDP support for your VMs you needed to follow a bunch of manual steps, which included modifying config files, creating a certificate, and uploading the cert to the portal. Now, all of the steps are taken care of for you via a single cmdlet, “Enable-AzureRemoteDesktop”!
Say these three words with me: “Enable, Publish, Connect”. A picture tells a thousand words, so just glance at the screenshots below.
The release is also accompanied by an update of the Windows Azure Node.js Developer center content, which includes new “How-To content” and “Common tasks”.
Download your gift and enjoy!
