back to article Microsoft reveals revamped Azure CDN – in two editions

    Ugh timing Microsoft!

    I literally deployed Azure CDN today, brand new for a customer. The beauty of CDN plus storage account was low cost - I had a small static website that would have been literally cents per month. This change ratchets the costs up about 10000%. Couldn't you have waited a week till the project closed!? I would have avoided all the angst!
