Main role + wcf on one core RRS feed

  • Dear All,

    is it possible to use MainRole and WCF service on one core? I have test application and just want to decrease costs. By default it works on 2 cores and I have duplicate billing...


    Thanks in advance

  • It is possible with full IIS Web Role. You will only scale out when you need it.

    Simply merge these two projects into one and use different ports for incoming traffic.

  • MainRole = website?

    As for the 1.3 SDK, you can host multiple web sites in a single web role.  This will allow you to combine roles and lower costs. However, you will loose the ability to scale the sites independently.

  • Thanks for your answers. Yes, MainRole is a silverlight based website. I want to combine it with two WCF services and I want they all to use only one core on Azure.
