REST API for the Windows Azure VM Role RRS feed

  • Question

  • We are currently evaluating Windows Azure VM Role. I understand that you use csupload, windows azure portal, and VS 2010 Azure SDK integration to eventually get the vm image up on Azure and setup the Hosted Service. You can then use the Azure Portal to deploy the VM on the cloud (have it running).

    What I am interested in / wondering, is whether there is available a REST API to manage the deployment of the VM on Azure - once all the manual steps are done to get the .vhd file loaded on Azure and the Hosted Service is setup. In another word, is there a REST API that will allow us to start and stop the VM Role on Azure?

    Thank you,
