Everyone's talking about Cloud Computing now. And for developers, Cloud Computing is like a cool breeze on a hot summer's day. It takes the burden off you because you no longer have to worry about hardware and installing operating systems and databases.
Commercially available since February 2010, the platform has evolved tremendously and today includes features like compute, storage, access control, database and BI, virtual machines, CDN, VPN, caching, service bus and much more.
It's also getting a lot easier to have your application take account of variations in load. It's all included in the Windows Azure.
So you can save time during the development process and have fewer worried once the application is online. Meaning you can be totally relaxed and enjoy your holiday!
