Hot on the heels of the OData Helper for WebMatrix, today we are pushing a new helper out into the community. The Windows Azure Storage Helper makes it ridiculously easy to use Windows Azure Storage (both blob and table) when building your apps. If you’re not familiar with “cloud storage,” I recommend you take a look at this video where my pal Ryan explains what it’s all about. In a nutshell, it provides infinitely simple yet scalable storage, which is great if you are a website with lots of user generated content and you need your storage to grow auto-magically with the success of your apps. Tables aren’t your normal relational databases—but they are great for simple data structures and they are super fast.
