At this moment we are busy with deploying our Sitefinity project to Azure Webroles. In our view, the solution that you suggested is not quite the solution. If Microsoft will be performing a re-image on the Windows Azure WebRole, the content will be put down as it was deployed. If labels are changed, these changes will disappear. This because the .resx files are put back as these were original. Is there a solution from your side to solve this problem?
This has again become an issue for us. I wanted to check in and see if anything has changed regarding custom/localized resource management.
Is there some other best practice for managing labels and resources (updates to existing, and also custom resources) in the cloud? Locking changes down to deployment-only, and losing administrative changes in Azure is unnacceptable to a lot of our clients in the age of Cloud Computing.
I was on a project that used Azure VMs and to get around this we created a shared GlobalResource folder that the instances used. Hope that helps or let me know if you want more details.
