I have a small application that I would like to convert to a cloud app and would like to use MS Azure.  And I need, and would greatly appreciate, some guidance.  Any lessons learned, pitfalls, special considerations, recommendations, etc would all be welcome.   Thank you.

For running application, there are 2 models of work with Azure:

Virtual servers http://azure.microsoft.com/en-us/services/virtual-machines/
Cloud services http://azure.microsoft.com/en-us/services/cloud-services/

Which one did you have in mind?

Thank you shalomc.   Cloud services for sure.   It seems far simpler and believe me, I need simple.

I need to just start plowing through this thing I believe.   My database is in Access and I'm pretty sure Access will not work and that I will need to convert this to some form of SQL.  Do you think that this should be my first step?   And if so do you have a recommendation of what flavor of SQL I should use?

To keep in line, obviously Azure SQL Service.
