Examining Public Cloud Platforms: Windows Azure and Its Competitors

The rise of public cloud platforms marks a major shift in our industry. Yet as usual with big changes, there are lots of options and plenty of confusion. In this session, David Chappell will provide an independent perspective on Microsoft’s public cloud platforms. He’ll also show where other options such as those from Amazon, Google, VMware, and Salesforce.com fit into the story. The goal is to provide a big-picture perspective on public cloud platforms today.
