How to use the Task Scheduler in Azure

I'm fairly new to Azure so I was helping someone could help me. I have a list of tasks that need to be run at a certain time. With Windows Server, I'm able to use Task Scheduler to schedule my programs to run at that time. And on top of that, I can also create a Windows service that would run at a certain time and then execute the appropriate task. Now, I'm trying to do this in a cloud computing environment. Would it be possible in Azure?

To use the Azure task scheduler service, set up a service bus queue. Begin by setting up a worker role. Next, send messages into the queue. The worker will execute the jobs in the order that the messages are received. You can automate the message delivery. Other options to try include Celery and the Mobile Services scheduler. The task schedule service in Azure is beneficial because it allows you to run jobs right away, run jobs in a particular order or set up a queue for jobs to be run in the future at any date and time that you specify.
