Windows Azure Firestarter (Part 1 of 3): Getting Your Head Into the Cloud

Date Added: Dec 2010
Format: Podcast

Ask ten people to define "Cloud Computing," and you'll get a dozen responses. To establish some common ground, the speakers kick-off this podcast by delving into what cloud computing means. Instead of presenting an array of acronyms like SaaS and IaaS, they focus on the scenarios that cloud computing enables and the opportunities it provides. The speakers use this podcast to introduce the building blocks of the Windows Azure Platform and set the stage for the two questions most pertinent to you: "how do I take my existing applications to the cloud?" and "how do I design specifically for the cloud?"
