Information is now hitting the web about Microsoft Azure and how this benefits Cloud Computing.
Reactions so far seem mainly positive from the Cloud Computing newsgroups that I subscribe to.
Microsoft’s market position is to leverage the environment they have and increase availability to the Cloud. Their advantage has always been around architecture, and for many organisations “Architecture = Microsoft” has simplified a very complex debate – and cut short many a 12 month engagement for budding enterprise architects. The key message coming through is “these are very familiar environments for developers and your support engineers”.
Will be interesting to see the feedback over the next short while and please feel free to post your feedback comments here. In the meantime you can find out more at Azure.
