In this article we are going to see the new enhancements updated with the Windows Azure Management Portal
 

Introduction:

In this article we are going to see the new enhancements updated with the Windows Azure Management Portal.

Overview:

Windows Azure team announced the new updated version of the Windows Azure Management Portal to provide the users with rich user experience and efficient UI. Let us see the list of enhancements provided with the newer version.

Updates:

Update 1 - Localization

Windows Azure Management Portal is now supported with 11 New languages, so that the users can choose their desired language from the language chooser available at the top left corner. The new available languages are as follows - Japanese, German, Traditional Chinese, Simplified Chinese, French, Italian, Spanish, Korean, Russian, and Brazilian Portuguese.

Update 2 - Right Click on Menus

This update is really useful for the regular desktop users like the portal now supports Right clicking to get context menus for the Hosted Services, Storage Accounts and CDN tab as shown in the screen below

Update 3 - Performance Improvements

When the new portal is first loaded, it will prompt users to increase the local storage amount. Users can expect to see significantly lower initial load times with the addition of a local temporary cache and the optimization of network bandwidth consumption as shown in the screen below

Clicking on Change Quota will popup a window as shown in the screen below. To minimize the security risks no sensitive data will be stored on the local cache if users are browsing in Private mode.

Update 4: Enhanced Delete in Deployment

In the previous version if we need to delete the application deployed in the Azure portal we need to first stop the application and then delete the application. But in the latest version we can directly delete the deployed running application so the developers had not to wait till the application is stopped to delete it. This update will be very useful for the developers to avoid time.

Hope Windows Azure team will provide much more enhanced features like above to keep the developers task much easier.
