The Azure Services Evangelism team is pleased to announce the release of the Azure Issue Tracker sample application.

The Azure Issue Tracker demonstrates a real-world ISV scenario where you want to create and host a SaaS application for your consumers. This sample is being released in two versions: Standard and Enterprise. The Standard version allows ad-hoc users to use Windows LiveID federation with the .NET Access Control Service and authorize other Windows LiveID users. This allows small groups of users to quickly provision projects and issue tracking capabilities while using the rich claims-based authorization model and flexible entity storage.

The Cloud is the NEW SOA 🙂
