Azure Scheduler Centralizes Job Triggering

Azure Scheduler is a service that can initiate tasks from a central location in Azure data centers by invoking HTTP endpoints and sending messages to Azure Storage Queues. The service can be used to trigger routine tasks such as data refreshes, log pruning, and backups on Web sites or application back-end services. Azure Queue support allows Scheduler to trigger tasks that may not be run immediately and send work items to services that are not always running.
