Amazon Seeds Windows Cloud
Amazon wasn't satisfied with just selling books online, so it started hocking
everything from music to clothes to bike parts. Then it looked around and realized
it had a rather massive datacenter(s)...so why not sell computing power, as
Many of Amazon's cloud services have apparently been Linux-based. But Linux
isn't enough for many customers who want to run Windows Server and SQL Server
remotely. Amazon is more than happy to oblige, and is now beta
testing these two platforms.
Microsoft itself is widely expected to announce a cloud of its own later this
month. Will clouds change the role of IT? And what services would you most want
up there? Wise answers welcome, as always, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
