SAN FRANCISCO, Jan. 24, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Node Summit -- Cloud9 IDE, Inc., the leading cloud-based Integrated Development Environment (IDE) for web and mobile applications, has announced the availability of Windows Azure deployment from the IDE.

Cloud9 IDE runs in modern web browsers and enables developers to run, debug and deploy Node.js applications from anywhere, at anytime. Integrating the Node.js IDE with Windows Azure allows developers to directly deploy applications and permanently host code on Windows Azure's robust services platform.
