Hi Chatsiri,

Yes, there are multiple backends for Cloud Haskell. The Azure backend
is, as you say, work in progress, although it's almost in a usable
state and we hope to release a first version (with minimal
functionality) soon. There is also the SimpleLocalnet backend which
you can use for local networks and is very convenient during

Provided that you can use the TCP transport, the development of other
backends should not be too difficult. For instance, it should be
relatively little work to develop a backend for Amazon's EC2
infrastructure (especially now that there is a much improved version
of the Haskell bindings for libssh2).

If however you need to develop a backend which requires a different
network transport (such as UDP, say), you would need to develop a new
Network.Transport implementation, which is a more serious undertaking.
