Is there something like JungleDisk, but based on Microsoft Azure?

Not yet. Azure is still in Community Preview mode. It will be moving into production on 1/1/2010. At that time you should expect to see pay services like JungleDisk go online.

I know about that, but I expecting some kind of technology preview for application like Azure JungleDisk. – MicTech Nov 17 '09 at 16:14
There hasn't been anything announced at PDC, and none of the vendors hare in the backup or hosting business. To date, all of the announcements / reference customers are firmly enterprise customer space. – Stephen J. Webb Nov 18 '09 at 4:10
Microsoft has announced that you can mount blob storage as an NTFS drive, so you may be able to roll your own. – Stephen J. Webb Nov 18 '09 at 4:33

You can check out Gladinet Cloud Desktop @

it allows you to map Azure Blob Storage as network drive/virtual folder, together with Amazon S3, Google Docs and a bunch of other services.

There is a Beta of Windows Azure Drive which was released on 2 February 2010 which is what Stephen appears to be referencing.
