Windows Azure and the cloud - What it’s all about

4,729 views

Published on

Join me for an overview of Microsoft’s cloud operating system: Windows Azure. Assuming no prior knowledge of Windows Azure, we’ll start with an explanation of cloud computing and Windows Azure and how this is different from traditional server applications. You will learn that Windows Azure is not a big monolithic block but instead consists of several smaller apps like compute, storage, SQL Azure traffic manager, the Windows Azure CDN and the Access Control Service.
