Microsoft Azure in the News...

Not much going on today related to Enterprise 2.0 unless you consider the cloud as a related topic. After all, many of the Enterprise 2.0 vendors are building their applications on cloud-based infrastructure or delivering their applications via SaaS. With Microsoft's PDC Conference going on this week, today's news focused on Azure, Microsoft's planned cloud-based operating system. Here are some of the more interesting stories I found:In this article the writer compares a recent memo from Steve Ballmer called "A Platform for the Next Technology Revolution" to 1995 memo from Bill Gates called "Internet Tidal Wave", a wake-up call of sorts to the changes in store due to the Internet. "The Cloud" represents an equally significant turning point in computing and one one Microsoft's Azure is targeted at:"Ballmer's cloud computing memo timed for election's winner"I also liked Art Wittman's blog on Microsoft which looks at the cloud from a business technology standpoint. What does this mean for companies large and small looking at how they can leverage the cloud, and where does Azure fit in:"Is The Cloud The End Of Microsoft?"Did your company make an announcement or did I miss any significant news? Feel free to comment.
