First at all im gonna give a brief of our project to intruduce you and then i can explain my problem (I've never used azure before).
We're developing a transactional app (VS 2010), divided into 2 diferent projects: a web app to manage administration and some reports and a client-server(winforms+wcf) app to manage the transactional operations. Also we have a central DB (WAN) that provides data to different LANs. Each LAN also has its own DB with a service that sinchonize every X mins the data.
The problem right now is that we need to test the client-server app in a real scenario and im not sure if windows azure is the better choise. I want to know what are the adventages of using windows azure instead of a normal hosting provider
Thanks, I really appreciate your help!
