Microsoft in the Cloud
You may know us for Redmond
magazine and our associated Web site. But
did you know that we have four other magazines, including Redmond
, aimed at Microsoft VARs and integrators; Visual
, aimed at programmers; Virtualization
for IT folks; and Redmond
(RDN) for development managers?
Two RDN reporters attended our recent VSLive!
New York show and came away with a better understanding of Microsoft's
cloud plans. Microsoft believes that much of what's in your datacenter right
now will move to the cloud. In fact, nearly everything that's essentially me-too
software -- such as database, e-mail and CRM -- will be remote.
While you may lament the lack of control, ultimately cloud computing could
save us loads of electricity. And because the software runs in massive, centralized
datacenters, security may well improve. Tell me where I'm wrong at firstname.lastname@example.org.
