A big thank you to everyone who attended yesterdays “informal” briefing on the Windows Azure Platform. There were lots of great discussions during the day and I know we al certainly enjoyed it.

This post contains (ultimately) the slides and links from yesterday.

Slides:

  • Davids on Windows Azure all up (TBD)
  • Eric on SQL Azure (which fyi is hosted on Windows Azure Blob Storage)

Links and Notes

  • Profile you company, profile your app – in time self-verify or test it against Azure.
  • Cloud Essentials is not yet mentioned on the MPR site but is explained at http://www.microsoftcloudpartner.com/ 
  • ISV Silver Competency – requires a MPR tested app. Windows 7, Windows Server 2008 R2, Windows Azure, SQL Azure.
  • Those Azure ones are straightforward Smile
