The Azure Mobile Apps Server SDK helps developers use Azure App Service to build a scalable back end that they can easily consume from client devices. Version 0.2.549 expands upon this mission by reducing some of the restrictions imposed by previous versions. The SDK is no longer limited to Web API and can be used with any ASP.NET project, including MVC. Developers can now select which features are enabled for their solution. For example, the authentication features and their dependencies do not need to be added if you are not using them.
The SDK is available as the Microsoft.Azure.Mobile.Server NuGet package
and as the Microsoft.Azure.Mobile.Server.* extension packages. You can also download a Quickstart solution for the client of your choice from the Azure portal
