Windows Azure SQL Database Marketplace
one of our Windows Azure MVPs,
has just published a great new book, "The Windows Azure
Handbook, Volume 1: Strategy & Planning". According to
David's post, this book has a two-fold mission: to make a case that cloud computing is
worth exploring, and also that they should make Windows Azure their cloud-computing platform of choice. Designed to help
business and technical decision makers evaluate and plan, the book is split in
two parts: Understanding Windows Azure
and Planning for Windows Azure.
According to David, this is
the first of a series of books covering the Windows Azure platform across the
full lifecycle, from both business and technical perspectives. Subsequent
volumes will focus on architecture, development, and management. Learn more about David's plans for the series
in this post.
