Kentico CMS 6.0 with Windows Azure Support

The Windows Azure support in Kentico CMS 6.0.

Solve all Windows Azure issues and prepare workarounds for the missing Windows Azure features. With version 6.0, we will get:

* Version 6.0 has completely rewritten file-system support (without any impact on the current websites), so Kentico CMS 6.0 recognizes if it is running on Windows Azure or on the standard Windows server platform. When running on Windows Azure, we are automatically using SQL Azure for any data and Azure storages for files operations.

* Coming with kentico cms own session providers, so it will be able to support multiple instances and web farms.

* Microsoft promised that SQL Fulltext will be available for Windows Azure in the near future. But we are not waiting for that and we have customized our Smart search to be running on Windows Azure.

* We will get an automatic installation to the Windows Azure, which will be part of the standard Kentico CMS installation.
