This is principally aimed at students to explore how cloud computing can help clear the fog out of cloud computing.  However it is open to other audiences too.

You’re invited to take a Dip into the Windows Azure Platform!
Microsoft invites you to discover more about Cloud computing and how to take advantage of this new approach through our free trial.
We're offering UK students an exclusive FREE trial of Windows Azure to evaluate the Platform and take the first step to Cloud computing. Sign up and be amongst the first to experience the ease with which you can build, deploy and manage applications in the Cloud - see details below

The Dip into Windows Azure Trial has been developed by Microsoft UK and ICS Solutions, a Microsoft Gold partner that helps organisations move from the Fog to the Cloud™. Together we have created a unique offering that provides an online tutorial and sample application to help you get started, plus access to resources that will deepen your Azure knowledge. Through the free trial you'll gain:

  • An early adopter experience of Azure prior to its commercial launch
  • Hassle free registration and streamlined account access
  • Your own private and secure area of the cloud
  • Access to a suite of readiness resources to deepen your Azure knowledge, including a unique application tutorial
  • Ability to build your own sample applications and deploy them to Azure
  • Information about future events to gain a deeper understanding of Azure

The trial has been developed to allow you to take a skinny dip or a deeper dive into the Azure Platform based on your level of interest and expertise, meaning you don't have to be an experienced developer to participate. If you are keen to start testing the Azure Platform for free before it becomes commercially available, take advantage of this limited trial offer and sign up today.
