Microsoft is making Cloud Power mainstream

No Comments »

Well, the headline may be a bit presumptuous, but at least they are trying.

Cloud Power - LHRI was pretty impressed when I saw the extent of the Cloud Power advertisement campaign in major Danish newspapers a few weeks back. However, if you live in Denmark, you may not realize just how much marketing muscle Microsoft is putting into this campaign.

I recently travelled to the United Kingdom and found that Cloud Power is everywhere: In the subway, on train stations and in the airport. I took these pictures with a slightly shaking HTC Desire (I was probably shaking from an overdose of bangers and mash).

It will be exiting to see where this will take Microsoft on the Cloud scene. I’ve never seen any of the other players in this space do advertisement like that.

Windows Azure Platform Acceleration Workshop

No Comments »

I will be teaching a 3-day training session on the Windows Azure Platform starting on the 8th of February. Last time I facilitated a similar event was back in December 2010, when 30 Microsoft partners showed up. It was great fun, so I am very much looking forward to repeating the exercise.

This particular event is by invitation only, but if you are interested in a similar training course or just an introductory session on Cloud Computing in general and Windows Azure in particular, please contact my company, Copenhagen Software.
