Microsoft Expands Data Centers… Again

Home / Azure / Microsoft Expands Data Centers… Again

Didn’t they just do this in the spring? Word is out that they’re expanding even more data centers. The cynical take would be that it’s really all about the expanded need for data because of XBox One. But I doubt that explains it all. What’s happening is that Azure is finally taking off. Note, I didn’t say that Azure SQL Databases are taking off. I’m not sure they are. I think it’s a combination of the web sites and the virtual machines. I’ve a feeling that Microsoft’s investment is actually going to pay off. Question for you. Have you invested in Azure too? If not, time to get started. I’ve posted about it multiple times, so I won’t insult you with a bunch of links. Just one, connect your existing MSDN account to an Azure account. It costs nothing. It doesn’t require a credit card. You’ll NEVER be charged for this. They can’t. They don’t have your credit card. You can start learning this new technology. To a small degree or a large one, it’s in your future. Get started learning it now.

OK, fine, but what do you think?
