Full IIS on Windows Azure  
Windows Azure allows to run the Full Internet Information Services (Full IIS). It used to run only component called Hosted Web Core (HWC) which is limiting when compare to traditional IIS. For instance, Full IIS can now run multiple site on one Azure role.

Microsoft announced Full IIS for Azure at PDC 2010 and it is now part of Windows Azure SDK v1.3 which you can download from Microsoft website.

An example on how to set up more than one site within section looks like this:

 < Sites>
  < Site name="Web">
    < VirtualApplication name="WebAppOne" physicalDirectory="C:\Projects\WebAppOne\" />
    < Bindings>
      < Binding name="HttpIn" endpointName="HttpIn" />
    < /Bindings>
  < /Site>
  < Site name="WebAppTwo" physicalDirectory="C:\Projects\WebAppTwo">
    < Bindings>
      < Binding hostHeader="WebAppTwo.example.com" name="HttpIn" endpointName="HttpIn"/>
    < /Bindings>
  < /Site>
< /Sites>
