TechNet Radio: (Part 5) Infrastructure as a Service – Windows Azure Licensing Options

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.

  • [3:46] Tell us about the free trial for Windows Azure?
  • [7:20] What other things are in Windows Azure that an IT Pro might be interested in?
  • [10:02] How can the WebMatrix tool help IT Pros and Developers with their websites?
  • [14:10] Is WebMatrix just designed for Azure or can you point it to an IIS server?
  • [15:28] What are some of the common questions and concerns you get about licensing?
  • [23:22] Do you see more customers using one big virtual machine or a bunch of little ones?
  • [26:55] Some people fear that Azure will “take their job”. Have you found that to be the case?
