Cloud Expo® Silicon Valley $500 Savings here!

When Windows Azure was first released a few years ago, it was Microsoft's PaaS offering in the public cloud space. This has matured and Microsoft recently released a preview of their IaaS offering in Windows Azure. This new offering allows an organization to host a virtual machine with various operating systems (including Linux) and different applications such as Active Directory Domain Controllers or SharePoint Server as an example. These VMs in Azure can also be connected with PaaS instances in Azure or on-premises infrastructure.

In his general session at the 13th International Cloud Expo®, Matt Hester, Senior Information Technology Professional Evangelist for Microsoft, will provide an overview of this new capability and how to get started.
