Microsoft Announces Windows Azure: Cloud Computing
Microsoft on Monday announced a version of Windows that runs over the Internet from inside Microsoft’s own data centers.
Dubbed Windows Azure, it’s less a replacement for the operating system that runs on one’s own PC than it is an alternative for developers, intended to let them write programs that live inside Microsoft’s data centers as opposed to on the servers of a given business.
