BabSim and... Windows Azure

What is Windows Azure?

Windows Azure is a cloud services operating system that serves as the development, service hosting and service management environment for the Windows Azure platform. Windows Azure provides developers with on-demand compute and storage to host, scale, and manage web applications on the internet through Microsoft datacenters. Windows Azure offers a flexible, familiar environment for developers to create cloud applications and services. With Windows Azure, you can shorten your time to market and adapt as demand for your service grows.

With multiple data centers worldwide, and a worldwide Content Delivery Network, you can build applications that provide the best experience even to the most remote places.  Windows Azure supports a deployment model that enables you to upgrade your application without downtime.  It provides automatic OS and service patching, built in network load balancing and resiliency to hardware failure.  You can use any language, framework or code editor to build applications, including .NET, PHP, Java, Node.js, Python and Ruby.  In addition, Windows Azure supports popular standards and protocols including SOAP, REST, XML, and PHP.
