Fastest Way to Build for the Cloud – without the hassle of managing infrastructure

Cloud computing may be the most disruptive, transformative technology shift since the Internet, and migrating business to the cloud isn’t just a trend anymore but rather a fundamental business requirement.  Cloud computing has already proven worthy of attention from established enterprises and start-ups alike. Most businesses are looking at cloud computing with more than just idle curiosity and research suggests that most enterprise IT managers have enough resources to adopt cloud computing in combination with on-premises IT capabilities.


At Microsoft we have three main cloud strategies; one that addresses optimizations in traditional data centers or private IaaS Clouds; and two, a public SaaS strategy with services like Office 365 and Microsoft Dynamics Online. However, Microsoft’s third and most revolutionary strategy in the cloud is the Windows Azure Platform-as-a-Service - it is dramatically changing how organizations build, test, maintain, market and sell software solutions.


Platform as a Service (PaaS) fills the needs of those who want to build and run custom applications as services. It is for anyone who needs custom applications. PaaS offers hosted application servers that have near-infinite scalability resulting from the large resource pools they rely on and necessary supporting services like storage, security, integration infrastructure and development tools for a complete platform.


PaaS is generally suitable for brand-new applications, as legacy applications often require extensive refactoring to comply with sandbox rules.  Join this 60 minute webinar to understand how your organization can leverage Windows Azure to build and run enterprise grade applications in the cloud
