What is Windows Azure ? from PDC 2008 announcements

* Windows Azure is a cloud services OS that serves as the development, run-time, and control environment for the Azure Services Platform. It was pre-announced as "Windows Cloud".

* It provides on-demand compute, storage, manage web applications thru Microsoft data centers.

* It allows .NET developers to push their applications and/or databases into the cloud, while still allowing them to debug their apps on their local machines. but existing applications will have to be re-worked to run on Azure.

* Developers can use the new Azure SDKs to begin tooling their applications to run in the cloud. Microsoft has made SDKs available for .NET developers using Visual Studio as well as SDKs for Java and Ruby developers. AzureServices-Components_1 image
