Available immediately from Code Gallery, download the Windows Azure MMC.  The Windows Azure Management Tool was created to manage your storage accounts in Windows Azure and makes it simple to help debug, create, and explore your storage solutions.  In our testing, this tool has been invaluable to us to inspect messages in our queues.


debug, create, explore…


Developed as a managed MMC, the tool allows you to create and manage both blobs and queues.  Easily create and manage containers, blobs, and permissions. Add and remove queues, inspect or add messages, or empty queues as well.



·         Manage multiple storage accounts (makes it easy to manage all your accounts)

·         Easily switch between remote and local storage services

·         Manage your blobs

o   Create containers and manage permissions

o   Upload files or even entire folders

o   Read metadata or preview the blob contents

·         Manage your queues

o   Create new queues

o   Monitor queues

o   Read (peek) messages

o   Post new messages to the queue

o   Purge queues


* The current release does not work with Windows 7 due to a bug in the underlying PowerShell version. All other OS versions should be unaffected.
