Windows Azure Storage for WordPress

Enables developers running their own instance of WordPress to take advantage of the Windows Azure Storage services, including the Content Delivery Network (CDN) feature.

Project Detail

The Windows Azure Storage plugin for WordPress allows developers running their own instance of WordPress to take advantage of the Windows Azure Storage services, including the Content Delivery Network (CDN) feature. It provides a consistent storage mechanism for WordPress Media in a scale-out architecture where the individual web servers don't share a disk. Note that this scenario goes beyond WordPress and could also be very compelling any other web application where there's a need to load balance across a number of web servers without shared disk.

The plugin is a regular WordPress plugin developed in PHP, and can be deployed on any WordPress instance. The plugin uses the Windows Azure SDK for PHP to handle the interactions with Windows Azure.
