Get started with Windows Azure Mobile Services

It is incredibly easy to add a backend to your connected client application using Windows Azure Mobile Services (WAMS).

With WAMS you can provide a secure and scalable backend to power your apps not only on Windows but many other platforms such as iOS, Android etc. Storing data and authenticating users is effortless and you can even send push notifications. As to programming languages you can use Node.JS or C#.

There are several data storage options as well, on-premises or Azure SQL Satabase, blob storage, table storage and MongoDB.

Here is a small sample of customers leverging this service.

When you create a Windows Azure Mobile Service you can also create a (free) backend SQL Database as well.

Follow this link to create your first Windows Azure Mobile Service.
