Session Description

Windows Azure and the Enterprise

There are three chief driving forces behind the move to the cloud -- Speed, Scale and Economics. We all know these words, but in the last few years their definitions have changed radically. During this session will cover how Windows Azure integrates with what you have, but at the same time giving you the need in minutes not days, at a global scale and on-demand pace with the ability to pay for it as you need it.

During this session we will cover Microsoft’s public cloud platform: Windows Azure, which includes Infrast ructure as a Service, Platform as a Service, Websites, Media Services, Mobile Services, Database Services and much more.
