 Wordpress plugin for Media hosted in Azure

Microsoft has announced a WordPress plug in that lets you use Azure for media storage.  While using cloud storage isn't in and of itself exactly earth shattering, this is noteworthy as it shows two things: 1) Microsoft continues to RAPIDLY improve it's cross platform capability. There have been a very big commitment from Microsoft in getting PHP applications to run easily and reliably on IIS 7 for example. Installing Wordpress on IIS 7 is drop dead simple using the Web Platform Installer tool (see for details). 2) Demonstrates how Azure can be used in a variety of situations including as platform form hosting media as well as a app platform. In short, Azure can fit a lot of needs. That's what you want and need from cloud service and Azure delivers.
