Windows Azure

This is a version of windows which runs over the internet using Microsoft’s data center. I’ve just signed up for a development account with which to test this from Microsoft Connect. This is Microsoft’s step one into cloud computing and a Community Technology Preview on this was given at PDC 2008. I’ll update this as my testing goes on.
