Our datacenters are awesomeness in a box

Last week I attended the (first?) Seattle Windows Azure User Group meeting. One of the topics of conversation was around datacenters. (Tip: We typically don’t build them above bakeries).

We don’t as a rule talk very much about how awesome they are – although there are a few videos out there which are great for a Friday lunchtime watch.

You can find more geeky videos on the Microsoft Global Foundation Services site at http://www.globalfoundationservices.com/infrastructure/videos.html.

Just a note, these are videos about our datacenters and not just Windows Azure.

BTW – if you are in the Seattle area, you should join the user group. People like Steve Marx & Vittorio Bertocci might even be there.
