Azure is an Open Platform Cloud Computing

Interestingly,Windows Azure is an open platform that will support both Microsoft and non Microsoft languages and environments.To build applications and services on Windows Azure,developers can use their existing Microsoft Visual Studio 2008 expertise.Windows Azure is not grid computing,packaged software,or a standard hosting service.It is an integrated development,service hosting and management environment maintained at Microsoft datacenters.The environment includes a robust and efficient core of compute and simple storage capabilities and support for a rich variety of development tools andprotocols.

Jon Brodkin of Network World quotes Tim O’Brien, senior director of Microsoft’s Platform Strategy Group, as saying that Microsoft’s Windows Azure and Amazon’s Elastic Compute Cloud tackle two very different cloud computing technology problems today, but aredestined to emulate each other over time.
