CKAN 2.0 on VM Depot[/caption]
Along with our release of CKAN 2.0, we have been building simple methods for faster deployment. Our intention is to get you up and running quickly and easily.
VM Depot is "a community-driven catalog of preconfigured operating systems, applications, and development stacks that can easily be deployed on Windows Azure." You will find a straightforward deployment script
and a step-by-step set of instructions
We would like to thank the team at Microsoft Open Technologies which made this possible and we hope that you find this a simple way to develop test instances and custom extensions, as well as new stand-alone open data services.
We would love to hear about the sites you set up there, so please let us know and we can feature them on ckan.org
