The Windows Azure platform was introduced last year but it is just recently that Microsoft made this cloud computing platform available in the Philippines. In a nutshell, the Windows Azure Platform includes a cloud services operating system, a Web-based relational database in Microsoft SQL Azure, and connectivity and interoperability with .NET services.
With this move, Microsoft is creating new opportunities for businesses and developers to drive new revenue through the development of innovative cloud services.
According to John Bessey, Microsoft Philippines Managing Director, the Windows Azure platform delivers a rich development experience, automated service management and pay-as-you-go pricing backed by service-level agreements and support. Microsoft partners will also benefit from special promotional offers and discounts that will help enable partners to bring solutions to market faster, reduce IT complexity, and increase revenue opportunities.
