We welcome our good friend Tim to the podcast to talk about everything Azure. The genesis of the service, how it’s evolved, where it fits with services like AWS, its strengths, and how and why companies should start considering using it.
During the show it was incorrectly stated that Azure began as a IaaS offering. Listener Carmen Crincoli set us straight on that:
“Your cloud guest got Azure history wrong. It started as pure PaaS, not IaaS. Isolation mechanism just happened to be VMs. The fact that it was pure PaaS actually hurt it. No one was ready for that in 2008.”
Thanks for the correction, Carmen!
