Over the past few months I have been blogging a lot about the new Windows Azure Virtual Machines. That is because I can see the huge impact on projects for having this type of infrastructure available literally at your fingertips – for pennies an hour.
Just yesterday I setup a full windows domain with 4 servers accessible worldwide in a matter of an hour or two.
I wanted to highlight the general complexity I see at many client related to setting up a new Virtual Machine. I created a video and entered it into the Windows Azure Makes Me FAST Contest. The video is called “The Story of your Life – Mr. Virtual Machine”. It is a “remake” of the old TV Show This Is Your Life well at least that was the goal.
Take a look at the video below and vote for it if you like what you see!
Step 1: Got to http://www.meetwindowsazure.com/fast and find my video. The videos are in the middle of the page. You might have to click the right arrow to see it.
Step 2: Look for video titled “The Story of your Life – Mr. Virtual Machine by Stephen W. Thomas”.
Step 3: Watch it and Vote for it if you like it.
Of course, if you do not like the video please do not vote for it. This website has a lot of other interesting videos. The coolest, next to mine of course, is the one by Alan Smith – “Rapid Massive On-Demand Scalability Makes Me Fast!”. It is well worth a watch.
