What’s new in Windows Azure?

In June 2012 Microsoft released a major update for Windows Azure, including IaaS (mounting virtual machines), websites on a shared infrastructure and a variety of frameworks, virtual networks, a new SDK, and support for many new languages including Java, Python, PHP and JavaScript.

This release puts Microsoft’s flagship cloud offering in great competition with Amazon in the IaaS market and with Google App Engine in the website market.

On the coming Sela Dev Academy I will be training a whole day tutorial in which I will present the new Azure portal and demonstrate the new features in the SDK.

Are you already using Azure? Are you developing against the SDK?

If you’re using Amazon or Google’s platforms you might want to hear this one out.
