Has Orchard been tested and confirmed to run with more than one server in Azure?  I read online that Orchard does not allow modules to be added dynamically when hosting is in Azure -- is this true?  When modules are added to an Azure-hosted Orchard instance, is state not persisted?

Thank you for reading my question.

It will work out of the box on Azure Web Sites as it's using a shared File System.

On Azure Cloud Services you will need to package the module within the Azure package file.

Thank you for your response! So it is using Azure Web Sites instead of Cloud Services?  That is very interesting to me, I'll definitely try it out!
