Announcing Free Ingress for all Windows Azure Customers starting July 1st, 2011

Microsoft has announced a change in Windows Azure pricing--inbound communication is now free! In the past, Microsoft has sometimes waived ingress charges during off-peak times, but this is now the case all the time. For those with large amounts of uploading to do, this is welcome news.

"Today we’re pleased to announce a change in pricing for the Windows Azure platform that will provide significant cost savings for customers whose cloud applications experience substantial inbound traffic, and customers interested in migrating large quantities of existing data to the cloud. For billing periods that begin on or after July 1, 2011, all inbound data transfers for both peak and off-peak times will be free."
