Azure. Blue colour of the clear sky. The heraldic colour blue. An unclouded sky.
Microsoft Azure? Build new applications in the cloud — or use interoperable services that run on Microsoft infrastructure to extend and enhance your existing applications. I’m not sure what Azure means for Microsoft’s core business. Ray Ozzie claims that the relationship between Azure and Windows will involve “bi-directional innovation transfer” — whatever that means.
I can see a time coming soon where a desktop OS becomes less and less relevant. Perhaps Azure will re-define what an OS is for the cloud computing age.
