Windows Azure (Intro)

I recently signed up for a free Windows Azure account to learn more about the cloud offering from Microsoft.

Windows Azure is a Microsoft product.  Described below by Wikiepedia.
cloud computing platform used to build, deploy and manage applications through a global network of Microsoft-managed datacenters. Windows Azure allows for applications to be built using many different programming languages, tools or frameworks and makes it possible for developers to integrate their public cloud applications in their existing IT environment. Windows Azure provides both Platform as a Service (PaaS) and Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) services and is classified as the “Public Cloud” in Microsoft's cloud computing strategy, along with its Software as a Service (SaaS) offering, Microsoft Online Services

 So I have been reading online about how easy it is to setup your websites and data driven web applications and I thought I would give it a try.

I am not going to blog about How to publish a site or signup or anything like that.  There are already lots of blogs posts like that.  What I will blog about are some things I was able to do that aren't really talked about anywhere else.

My first azure blog post will be Migrator Dotnet and Azure.
