In IT things are clearly moving from a CapEx to an OpEx model where the focus is shifting from internal data center and hosted applications into the Cloud with its consumption based pricing model. The lure of pay-as-you go pricing is attractive; but it does carry with it some risk. If you choose the wrong applications to move into the cloud it could wind up costing you more than running them locally or at a hosting provider. It also requires increased discipline related to allocation and deallocation of Cloud resources.

We will start off with a discussion of these considerations, and then dig down into the features supported by the Microsoft Azure public cloud. The presentation will include an architectural overview of the Azure platform, its features and services. Since Azure is a very broad offering, we will focus on the question of what the Azure Platform as a Service (PaaS) and Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) features are, and when they should be used to solve specific business and technical problems.

If you are new to Azure, or not conversant with all of its recent enhancements, this presentation will give you a good overview, not too deep but deep enough, to understand what to use when.
