Use Windows Azure as your SharePoint Records Center
Microsoft SharePoint contains functionality for Records Management, which essentially is a storage for documents that you would like to store and manage in a separate records center to meet certain legal or other requirements or just to make backups of certain document revisions. To be able to create a Records Center you need to have Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007 (MOSS). On the other hand you only need Windows SharePoint Services 3.0 (WSS) to send documents to the Records Center.
You configure the Records Center connection in the Central Administration. When connecting to the Records Center all you do is specify a Url to a web service and a name. The Url points to a special MOSS web service called OfficialFile.asmx (http://server/_vti_bin/OfficialFile.asmx). Your receiving Records Center server does not have to be in the same farm as from where you send the document (and it should probably not be either). Another thing is that the receiving Records Center does not even have to be a SharePoint server. It’s just a web service and we can implement it anywhere we like.
I thought why not implement it using the Windows Azure technologies? This would be a great solution when you do not want to invest in either MOSS or a new MOSS farm, when you really want your important documents to be stored on a completely different physical location etc.
