UK Cloud User Group

Yesterday I attended the 2nd Cloud Evening meeting it was terrific - this event focused on Microsoft's offering.  Specifically the latest version of Azure (1.4 I think) and it looks impressive.  Previously, I felt limited by Azure however, I think Azure SQL is a good option for storing application data especially when Office 365 is released or to extend SharePoint 2010. 

Both Mark Rendle and Planky (Steve Plank) gave good presentations.  I came away with tons of information and I'm pleased I went along.  Planky's blog is definitely worth following.  The security around Azure and Office 365 is fairly complex but considering the integration with LDAP providers and the security considerations it is well thought out and tooled.
