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

Virtual servers
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?
