VMDepot is now integrated into the Windows Azure Portal

A nice change I noticed today is that VMDepot images are now visible in the Windows Azure Portal.

If you go to Virtual Machines


You’ll see an option that says “Browse VMDepot”


If you click it, you get the list of the image already in the VM Depot:



You can select one and create a virtual machine based on that image, just like that! :)

The coolest of all is that you can create your own images, publish them to VM Depot and if they get accepted, they get visible in the portal as well.

Small addition but a lot of value comes out of it!
