The new Windows Azure Preview Portal is available and I am a big fan of it already. Be aware that it’s a ‘preview’ portal and not all of the functionality is available. It’s pretty easy switching back to the previous ‘silverlight based portal’, but I found it not so obvious when trying return to the preview one.
To switch to the original ‘silverlight based portal’, simply click on the green link at the top center ‘Preview':
Click on the link ‘Take me to the previous portal’
Finally, to return back to the Preview portal click on the link on the bottom of the ‘silverlight portal’.
