Ben Riga has been working with the Windows Azure Evangelism team over the last few months leading up to PDC. Ben was charged with working with several of our partners to get them ready for PDC ‘09. Ben also took the opportunity to chat with some of our partners about adopting Azure and the experiences they had. The results are now on Channel 9 and are worth checking out:
Kelly Blue Book – great story of migrating apps to the cloud. KBB are looking to use Windows Azure to handle spikes and failover.
Thuzi’s Outback Steakhouse Facebook App – the app behind the free Bloomin’ Onion is built on Windows Azure to handle spikes
Quark Software – are using Windows Azure to build a multi-tenant service.
Embarcadero – have integrated SQL Azure into their cross-DBMS product.
Invensys – are using the AppFabric Service Bus to connect devices for the power industry.
GoGrid – see how GoGrid are using Windows Azure to allow hybrid hosting/cloud services for development and testing.
There are many more to come over the next few weeks – check out http://channel9.msdn.com/tags/Azure-Lessons-Learned/ for updates.
