Windows AzureDownload the Windows Azure Tools for Microsoft Visual Studio and SDK and get free Azure tokens to try out the platform.  The tokens will be valid until the end of November. All that you have to do is to start the download from the eval centre at:

http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-za/evalcenter/ee460823(en-us).aspx

and forward the registration email that you receive to Microsoft at sadpblog@microsoft.com with the subject line Azure Token and Microsoft will send out the free tokens to you.

But hurry this offer only lasts for the first 100 downloads and registrations, and the tokens are valid until the end of November.

What is Azure

Windows Azure is a cloud services operating system that serves as the development, service hosting and service management environment for the Windows Azure platform.

I had recently written a review about cloud services blog, so this blog post comes at a very opportune time.

Windows Azure provides developers with on-demand computing and storage to host, scale, and manage Web applications on the Internet through Microsoft data centres.

Windows Azure is an open environment that will support both Microsoft and non-Microsoft languages and environments. To build applications and services on Windows Azure, developers can use their existing Microsoft Visual Studio expertise. In addition, Windows Azure supports popular standards and protocols including SOAP, REST, and XML.

But don’t stop there, because with Windows Azure you can support other popular languages such as Java, PHP and Ruby.

Use the SDK to develop Windows Azure Applications, then use the free tokens to try out the platform. The Windows Azure allows you to have the cloud on your desktop. It allows you to build and then run applications on your desktop machine just as though they were running in the cloud.

Who’s using Windows Azure

Well the list just keeps growing and growing. So I thought I would just mention a few here that might peek your interest.

 

Download the SDK and try it out

So what are you waiting for? Download the SDK. Get your free tokens. Try out the Azure platform. You and your company might be pleasantly surprised.
