Using the DotNetNuke Azure Accelerator
Late last year, I began work on getting DotNetNuke to run on Windows Azure. After a few months of research and numerous dead-ends, I finally had a fully working prototype. During this same period, David Rodríguez, was also doing some work with DotNetNuke and Azure as well.
After working through a few dead-ends of his own, David found the Azure Accelerator project from Slalom Consulting and decided to use this as a base for developing a DotNetNuke version. David has extended the original project to include an installation wizard which greatly simplifies the installation process. In addition, David has incorporated SMB support as suggested by the Windows Azure Storage team. These are just a few of the enhancements that David has included in the project with many more currently in development.
Below, I walk through using the new DotNetNuke Azure Accelerator 6.0 to install DotNetNuke on Windows Azure.
