Continuum (Of the Windows Azure Variety)
No, we will not need to get up to 88 mph, nor will we be discussing the time paradox, but we will be covering how each of the hosting options in Windows Azure (Windows Azure Web Sites, Virtual Machines and Cloud Services) create a continuum for your applications to move from on-premises to Software-as-a-Service , or anywhere in between that fits your needs. There are a lot of new options now that Microsoft has released two major new components of the Windows Azure Platform. We’ll explore the new hosting options, compare them with what we already have, and see how we can combine them to create flexible solutions.
