Seeding the Microsoft Cloud
Azure is the code name of Microsoft's new and unfinished cloud development and operating system platform, a technology we covered rather thoroughly in this
recent cover story. While the beta (or "community technology preview," in Microsoft's bizarre parlance) is only a few months old, there's already a second rev
of the test software.
The key to exploiting Azure is to first know Visual Studio. A big part of the Azure test release is actually a set of Visual Studio programming and testing extensions.
