Introducing Windows Azure Cloud Computing

Microsoft Azure competes with other hosted services, such as Amazon’s offerings. In case you were wondering about its name, Windows Azure probably is named for The Temple of Azure Clouds, a Buddhist temple located just outside the north gate of Fragrant Hills Park, a northwestern suburb of Beijing, China. It was built in the 14th century (possibly in 1331) during the Yuan Dynasty (1271–1368) and was expanded in 1748

Obviously, Windows Azure is Microsoft’s first foray into cloud computing; now that a free Community Technology Preview has ended, it can be accessed “for the money” at. Based on what has been released so far (as of June 2010), Azure certainly incorporates some of the major elements of Midori, and just as certainly, lacks some of the key features of Cairo, such as its Object File System.
