10,000 in the Cloud
Microsoft Tech*Ed, happening this week in New Orleans, hasn't had lots of exciting news that maybe a Zune Phone might engender. But there is a hint that Microsoft might be making some progress in its cloud strategy, starting with the announcement
that there's a sizable number of users of its Windows Azure services. Azure might not be generating Windows 7-type profits yet, but it's a start. Who else can lay claim to a customer base like that in the cloud (okay, besides Amazon and Google)?
There were some other important announcements from Microsoft, mainly on the tools side. Check out this report from Kathleen Richards, which covers much of it for those who couldn't be there.
