Facebook Azure Ttoolkit provides the ability to rapidly develop Facebook applications leverage Windows Azure to profit from all benefits of the cloud with a solid framework based on best practices. Facebook apps hosted in Azure provide a flexible and scalable cloud computing platform for smallest and largest of Facebook apps. Whether you’ve millions of users or just few thousand, FAT helps you to build app correctly so that if your app is virally successful, you won't have to architect it again. You’ll just need to increase the number of instances you’re using, and then you’re done scaling. Jim Zimmerman demonstrated these capabilities at MIX10, where he showed live Facebook apps, “Outback Facebook application and CloudPoll.” Both’re based on FAT. Furthermore CloudPoll will be made available for free to all Facebook users to create, manage, and evaluate polls for their pages, all using blob storage, SQL Azure, and compute hosted in Azure,” revealed Christian Klasen.
