SharePoint Stack Exchange is a question and answer site for SharePoint enthusiasts. It's 100% free, no registration required.

(I know this has been asked partly before: SharePoint Server 2010 to the Cloud (Azure) and here Sharepoint Development Environment Windows Azure but this is slightly different)

I see that yesterday the Azure AD was released. http://weblogs.asp.net/scottgu/archive/2013/04/08/windows-azure-active-directory-general-availability-new-backup-service-web-site-monitoring-and-diagnostic-improvements.aspx

Would this make the Azure a preferd platform for hosting a small farm? I'm asking a two part question here:

  • A) Will it work with the Azure ad?
  • B) Is it suitable both as a development and production environment - that is, what are possible traps that I should watch out for?
