Microsoft Azure Info
Microsoft's cloud called Azure - is growing at a phenomenal rate. Most companies now have at least part of their IT resource in the cloud - called a Hybrid model. Pay by the hour computing horsepower.
We think the main attractions are:
- Instant servers - literally 2 minutes and you have a new server (see demo)
- Instant change in size of computing horsepower - too slow ?....2 minute update and you double the server memory and computing processor horsepower
- Automatic ramp up and ramp down of the horsepower (and cost) if things change
- Switch off the cost in 2 minutes by shutting down the server. Some people shut down servers overnight to halve the cost. Especially good for development.
