Microsoft Makes Big Azure Announcements at PDC 2009

“Microsoft’s Ray Ozzie significantly blew past the basic Exchange, SharePoint and SQL database hosting services with the Azure announcements at PDC 2009 yesterday. The announcements also blow right past Amazon EC2 and targets Microsoft at Google, (’s cloud), OpSource and others offering hosting on demand, web services and bus interconnection services in the cloud. Microsoft peeled back last year’s Azure onion, showing us how Microsoft wants to do much more than just offer computing platforms or hosted Microsoft products.”
