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.
