The day will start off with a whirlwind tour of the various independent services that make up the Windows Azure Service Platform consumable from both cloud and on-premise services. Then we will discuss Azure's Data Storage services concentrating on blobs (for video, music, text, documents, etc.), tables (for non-relational data), and queues (for durable messaging between on-premise & cloud-based services).

The day will continue with a focus on Azure's compute services which allow you to deploy your own applications into Microsoft's data centers. Finally, we'll discuss deployment, configuration, management, tools, roles & how your roles interact with the Azure fabric controller.
