Hiya folks! You probably know that I am a Technology Evangelist (TE) on the US Developer and Platform Evangelism (DPE) team. What you may not know is that there are 12 of us in the United States that are a part of this team (I have linked each of them in the list on the right side of my blog). We have been working on a series of blog posts called “The 31 Days of Servers in the Cloud”. This is a series of posts about leveraging the new VM Role in windows Azure. You may also hear this referred to as Azure IaaS.
Thus far there have been 25 Posts made in the series covering a broad set of topics. There are topics ranging from a basic introduction to Azure IaaS and what it means to you to more specific topics like using PowerShell to create and manage VM’s in Azure. we are laying the groundwork in this series to get you up to speed on using Windows Azure IaaS as another tool for you to build and manage your infrastructure.
If you would like to learn more about Azure IaaS, I encourage you to sign up for a 90 Day Free Trial of Windows Azure!
