Add Octopus Deploy agent installation option
It's great that you've included Puppet agent and Puppet master support,
It would be even better if you also supported the .NET-based Octopus Deploy in a similar way where it would be possible to stand up a VM with an Octopus Agent (Tentacle) pre-installed and configured.
Today, at TechEd, we announced that Octopus is available as an extension in the Virtual Machine on Azure, today. You can deploy it by adding the extension to a running VM here (https://portal.azure.com/). We will have detailed Azure blog. @CoreySandersWA.

Just look for the word "Octopus" and scroll down a bit. Looks like you give it the Octopus Server URL, API Key, Environments, Roles, and Listen Port. It takes care of the rest from what I can tell.

Awesome. do you have any screens for how it works?
Any updates on this? When can we deploy VMS in Azure with a Tentacle installed?

We use Azure for our startup and trying out Octopus for our deployments. It would undoubtedly be a benefit to Azure to see Octopus deploy pre-installed.

This would be very helpful
JetBrains have added native support. Microsoft should follow suit and promote the PaaS!

FYI I've created the AzureWebFarm.OctopusDeply project (https://github.com/MRCollective/AzureWebFarm.OctopusDeploy), which allows you to use OctopusDeploy with Cloud Services (Web Roles) for a scalable web farm.
It contains all the code you would need to automate the installation of a tentacle.
