In today’s episode, I chat with Mark Rosenberg, a Technical Instructor at New Horizons Computer Learning Centers. We talk about some of the Windows Azure Licensing options. Tune in as we discuss all things licensing and pricing as well as the Windows Azure free trial, the WebMatrix tool, and on-premise versus the cloud.
