Today, at WPC, we announced the business and partner model for the Windows Azure platform. Here are few highlights from the announcement.
You can sign-up for the free CTP account for Windows Azure & .NET Services at http://www.microsoft.com/azure/register.mspx. SQL Azure will be available later this summer.
The basic pricing that we announced today is in the table below. As part of the Microsoft Partner Network, partners receive an additional 5 percent promotional discount.
