Microsoft Sets up Government Cloud

Microsoft is trying to show the world how great Azure is, and part of that is a new program that lets the U.S. federal government share non-classified data with agencies and the public.

The system uses a host of Microsoft technologies. Information is posted through Visual Studio and contained as SQL files.

Not sure if this is a freebie proof of concept or if Redmond is snagging some stimulus dough to fund it.
