Drupal on Windows Azure

Drupal on Windows Azure

Drupal is an open source content management system that runs on PHP. Windows Azure offers a flexible platform for hosting, managing, and scaling Drupal deployments. This paper focuses on an approach to hosting Drupal sites on Windows Azure, based on learning from a BPD Customer Programs Design Win engagement with the Screen Actors Guild Awards Drupal website. With the recent release of Windows Azure Websites, installing and creating a Drupal based website is straight-forward and seamless. However, as stated earlier, this paper is based on a customer design win project that used the Windows Azure platform.

Points for Managing & Monitoring your website  :

For monitoring and management, we will look at Drupal on Windows Azure from three perspectives.

  • Availability
  • Scalability
  • Manageability

Although some management tasks span one or more of these categories, it is still helpful to discuss Drupal management on Windows Azure within these focus areas.
