Quoting from Windows Azure MVP Serena as she shared with us on her session: I also gave a few demos on Azure Virtual Machines, Azure Web Sites, Azure Service Bus, Cloud Services and Azure SQL Database. My objective was to help educate the audience on the Windows Azure stack. I demonstrated to them how they can leverage on Windows Azure to gradually move their on-premise applications to the cloud based on their readiness level. I started with talking about IaaS solutions which most admins are familiar with, then moved on to the Service Bus hybrid model. The Service Bus demo was awesome IMHO because I showed the audience how to create a relay from Windows Azure to my server on stage. I finished the presentation with a demonstration of a layered application that is written for on-premise, and ported to Window Azure.”
