Do You Need

Databases – Yes

And much more….

I had always been little reluctant to push myself and explore the cloud computing world until recently, when I made up mind to enable the 90-day free trail membership that Microsoft offers on Windows Azure.

I have been working on Preview mode and so far, I am absolutely amazed by how easy it is create/delete the Virtual machines with the preferred pre-set images. If ever you need to scale, you can achieve it dynamically.

I deployed my own website to test the power of the Azure tools and so far, there has been no bottle necks.

With the current pricing, I believe it is a good news for the start-ups out there to begin using it and eventually scale as the need arises.
