Lots of notes & noise swirling around today after the Professional Developers Conference announcement of Windows Azure, Microsoft's platform for cloud computing and software + services.
As you can imagine the wraps on this were kept tighter than a very tight thing & so I haven't really had a lot of time to think about what it means specifically for SBS. Anything that helps customers & partners be more productive has to be a good thing but as always, time will tell.
Anyway, much smarter people than me are all over this & so to catch some of the coverage, check out:
- The official Microsoft web site
- The press release
- Ray Ozzie's keynote - on demand video
- Mary Jo Foley's guide for the perplexed
Cheers & let the conversations begin,
