Yesterday, Microsoft announced previews of new Windows Azure services that help developers build applications that connect data to users across public and private clouds, take advantage of VHDs and deploy scalable websites quickly and cheaply. With this release, I am confident that many IT Professionals will want to take a look at the new functionality and think about how to integrate them into your infrastructure strategy going forward.
In case you missed the announcements, here are the highlights:
The reality is that with the combination of System Center 2012, Windows Server 2012, and this release of Windows Azure provide the ability for organizations to scale their infrastructure on premise and online in a way that makes sense. As I learn more about what is to come, especially on the ways you can leverage virtual networking to tie your on-premise infrastructure seamlessly with those elements migrated to Windows Azure, I will be sure to let you know. For the time being, you may want to look into these upcoming events.
If you are as excited about this new release as I am (or even a little curious about the new features like persistent Virtual Machines, virtual networking, and more) read some more details on the Windows Azure Team blog and sign up for the free 90-day trial and test them out yourself. I will be doing the same but will hold off a bit to let you get first dibs.
