Azure Platform and Zenvera

Sorry we've been so quiet the past week or two!

We have been working on securing the long term future of the shard and have completed integration of the Zenvera core into Microsoft's Azure platform.

While it isn't an exciting new gameplay addition, it does mean that the project's hosting should be taken care of for years to come.

We also understand how important stability and reliability are to a community. We took this opportunity to integrate Azure's backup service to complement our existing weekly offsite backup process.

Thank you all for making this a great community!
