My colleague Bart Robertson has posted a nice blog about his deployment experiences on Window Azure platform: http://blogs.msdn.com/b/bartr/archive/2011/04/05/sxp-one-year-later.aspx.

Agility, Elasticity, Performance, Availability, and cost advantage are a few essential characteristics Bart outlines as the significant benefits of his Azure experiences.

Nice read for decision makers!
