Windows Azure MVP Ming Chung Chu

How long have you been an MVP?
I have been an MVP for 9 years (2004-2012)


How did you first start in community?

My community experience started with the Programmer-Club managing “Training and
Certification” and “.NET group” forums at 2001. In 2003, I joined the Microsoft online
community newsgroups to answer questions about .NET, ASP.NET, ADO.NET, Web
Service, SQL Server, Windows Server etc. I was awarded as an MVP for the first time
in SQL Server in October 2003. Currently, I am a Windows Azure MVP.


Which technical community or communities are you most active in (where can people find
you)? 
MSDN and TechNet Forum, and my blog: http://www.dotblogs.com.tw/regionbbs

What’s the best technical tip you have today for implementing a cloud deployment?
A Cloud solution is different to an on-premise solutions with high availability, state
management, storage and deployment strategy. Good design of solution architectures
and plans is very important for Cloud solution deployment.


When considering using the Cloud, what do you tell people if they aren’t sure about
moving
to the Cloud?
The Cloud environment is highly useful, extensive and low cost. Enterprise resources
could be provided by the Cloud which is suitable for newly founded companies or
organizations that do not need an IT team.


Do you have a blog/website link to Cloud related Tips or deployment stories you
would like to share?
