C++ and the cloud via Azure

Well the cloud certainly got another black eye with the Netflix and other services going down briefly (not Microsoft’s fault by the way).  But the newsworthiness of Netflix having a service outage does point to the importance of the cloud and devices.  I am on vacation at a resort in the middle of no where in northern California.  There is no cell service and limited sms access, but there is WiFi.  As a result, I was able to get my Netflix fix along with making a few calls via Skype and the WiFi on my cellphone.  Nice.  Nothing really special, but just how does C++ and DirectX fit into this model.
