The Windows Azure Platform Management Tool (MMC) enables you to easily manage your Windows Azure hosted services and storage accounts.  This tool is provided as a sample with complete source code so you can see how perform various management and configuration tasks using the Windows Azure Management and Diagnostics APIs. 



You can use the Windows Azure Platform Management Tool to perform the following operations:


Hosted Services

Upload, deploy, upgrade, and manage your hosted services in Windows Azure



Configure instrumentation for Windows Azure applications (diagnostics) per source (perf counters, file based, app logs, infrastructure logs, event logs). Transfer the diagnostic data on-demand or scheduled. View / Analyze / Export to Excel and Clear instrumentation results.



Upload / manage certificates for Windows Azure applications


Storage Services

Configure Storage Services for Windows Azure applications


Blob Storage

Add / Upload / Download / Remove BLOBs and Containers and connect to multiple storage accounts, including local dev storage



Add / Purge / Delete Windows Azure Queues



Query and delete Windows Azure Tables


The Windows Azure Platform Management Tool also provides the following features:



Create plugins for rich diagnostics data visualization (e.g. add your own visualizer for performance counters). Create plugins for table viewers and editors or add completely new modules! Plugin Engine uses MEF (extensibility framework) to easily add functionality.



The MMC experience is based on the Windows Azure Platform PowerShell cmdlets. If you don't like the management user interface, you can still use the underlying cmdlets to perform management operations within PowerShell.  You can also use the source code with the PowerShell cmdlets to see how to use the Windows Azure Management and Diagnostics APIs.
