2011 April 4

Venue: Microsoft London

Date: 29th March 2011

Why:  Microsoft Vision for Cloud Computing offering a holistic approach that enables organisations to determine what they need from the Cloud and how it fits into their environment.

What: Microsoft Azure (Storage | Compute | Management)  “Build to expect & withstand failure”.

NOTE: Microsoft Azure Appliance Servers (used by DELL | HP) Containers (yours for 3million per unit).

Some interesting cloudy stats:

  • MSN Messenger 10 Billion Transations Per Day;
  • Over 370 Million Hotmail Accounts;
  • 3 Billion Bing Searches Per Day.

Interesting point on Microsoft radar  “ROI Improvements for DEV/TEST enviromnents on demand (Hyper-V Cloud | VM Role)”

I’m now looking forward to finding out more about the Microsoft Azure Connect & Data Sync solutions next
