The latest Community Technology Preview of Web Sandbox is designed to take its approach to securing Web 2.0 content to Microsoft Cloud operating system, Azure, via the Azure Services Platform.

From the online documentation: “We insert the intercepting layer through a code transformation. By default this transformation executes server side, on our servers. Two additional options are available. If Silverlight is installed, the transformation could execute client-side, thus saving the round-trip to the server. The transformation could also execute in the cloud, on the Azure Services Platform Community Technology Preview. (Note that the Azure transformation is enabled only when the gadget code is specified via a URL.) The three options use the same codebase,” Dragos Manolescu.
