Does cloud computing offer anything compelling for you, your business or your customers?
- Cloud computing with Windows Azure provides technologists with new options for where applications reside, how applications behave, and the business models that drive them.
- Cloud computing eliminates the need to predict traffic levels, purchase hardware or hosting capacity in advance, and keep os's patched. Applications are given the capacity they need on demand. You only pay for computing and storage you use.
- Some of the most difficult and costly things to achieve in I.T. such as high availability and ensuring scalability are no longer headaches the enterprise has to deal with. Scalability, reliability, and high availability come with the platform automatically.
- Developers no longer have to make a choice between the benefits of what can be delivered to users via the web versus traditional on-premises software. Microsoft offers the opportunity for developers to offer both with a software-plus-services approach. It is an industry shift that combines services on the Web with client and server software to deliver the best of both worlds.
