cloud economies of scale

  • Great economic revolutions of the past have often been brought by economies of scale including:
  • The Industrial Revolution
  • The Assembly Line
  • The Transistor and Resulting Computer Revolution
  • And now, The Cloud
data center challenges
Data Center Challenges
  • Running data centers at scale is not simple and often there are limitations that you might never realize.
  • Over the years I have seen organizations grapple with the following limits:
  • Power
  • AC
  • Weight
  • Cost
resources resources resources
Resources, Resources, Resources!
  • There is no lack of help when it comes to working with Azure
  • Sources of technical guidance include:
  • Conferences: BUILD, TechEd, DevTeach, etc.
  • Community Groups: Code Camps, User Groups
  • Webcasts:
  • Podcasts:,
  • Other: Consultants, service providers, etc.

There will be a great deal of information delivered today designed to help you understand what Azure offers ISVs

We welcome conversations spawned by questions during the sessions, but reserve the right to have them after the sessions to be fair to all attendees

We hope you find today a worthy use of your time and give Azure a try in the near future!
