Azure Data To Vaporize for Non-Upgraders

Doug is out today, so filling in for him is Michael Domingo, editor of MCPmag.com and the voice behind Redmond Radio.

Microsoft's Azure has finally gone gold (no pun or mixed metaphors intended). Redmond says it's now time to hop on or off if you've been testing it out with data that resides up there. Data will be accessible in read-only mode after Feb. 1 and then, come March 1, that data will be vaporized if subscriptions aren't upgraded.

Azure testers, we'd like to hear about your experiences and whether you plan on upgrading for an upcoming feature. Send all feedback to dbarney@redmondmag.com and put "Azure experience" on the subject line.
