Windows Azure in Nepal

    Question

  • Can someone please shed some lights on why Windows Azure is still not available in Nepal. Is it because Microsoft doesn't see any usage/future in Nepal or they don't believe Programmers in Nepal even have the ability to rise to that standard?

    Is there somewhere I can vote up so that Microsoft would actually start hearing voices from Programmers from tiny country like Nepal?

    Please we are really really looking forward for this. Also let us know if there are some legal issues that is preventing microsoft from making Azure available in Nepal so that we could find a different way or live with it 

    :(

    Would really appreciate your response.

    Thanks

  • Hi Ishwor,
    Thanks for your interest in Microsoft products.
    As mentioned by BrentDaCodeMonkey in this thread(http://social.msdn.microsoft.com/Forums/windowsazure/en-US/85914985-301c-4048-9752-7f08891f496d/registration-for-windows-azure-country-is-absent-in-list): MSFT is adding more countries as they can and usually doesn't announce specific country availability until its been sorted out ,but in the meantime you can install the tools + SDK, you'll get a local runtime that emulates compute and storage (storage is actually stored in a local SQL instance, defaulting to SQL Express). The things you don't get are ACS, Service Bus, and Cache, etc. Check out this link for differences between real storage and simulated storage, and this link for Compute differences. Also find a similar question/answer for your reference: My country is not inside the list. what should I do?
    Thanks.

  • Thanks Will,

    Will try out the sdk. But won't be aple to play with deployment feature. As mentioned in the link, do you know any provider which front Azure subscription?, if you are allowed to do so.

    Hopefully Microsoft will be able to add "Nepal" to their list as soon as possible.

    Thanks Again.
