IronWorker Getting Started on Azure

Iron.io is pleased to announce it is offering its IronWorker platform as an Application Service within the Azure Marketplace, providing a key infrastructure component that gives developers immediate access to highly scalable event-driven computing services.

Every application in the cloud needs to process workloads on a continuous basis, at scale, on a schedule, or in the background. IronWorker is a modern application development platform for processing at a task level by isolating code packages and dependencies in a containerized compute environment managed by Iron.io.
