Check http://phpazure.codeplex.com/wikipage?title=Table%20storage%20session%20handler&referringTitle=Getting%20Started for information about that one.

"When running a PHP application on the Windows Azure platform in a load-balanced mode (running 2 Web Role instances or more), it is important that PHP session data can be shared between multiple Web Role instances. The Windows Azure SDK for PHP provides the Microsoft_WindowsAzure_SessionHandler class, which uses Windows Azure Table Storage as a session handler for PHP applications."
