Microsoft Leverages Cloud Storage for Massive Scale

Microsoft's Brian Prince Outlines Strategy at Cloud Expo

Three of the most important words when it comes to enterprise IT & Cloud Computing are storage, storage, and storage.

Microsoft Architect Evangelist Bring Prince will tackle this subject during his Cloud Expo session, entitled "Leveraging Cloud Storage for Massive Scale."

"Many organizations are a little shy when it comes to adopting the cloud, for several reasons,," Brian says. "Most are slowly adopting the cloud by using a hybrid architecture strategy. Couple this strategy with the need to increase scale and speed on your web application, without taking the big cloud jump."

Brian says his session "will look at how to achieve this with a low cost and low risk strategy of keeping your app where it is, but leveraging cloud storage and caching to achieve great scale and performance." He alleges that he gets "super excited whenever I talk about technology, especially cloud computing, patterns, and practices. That's a good thing, given that my job is to help customers strategically leverage Microsoft technologies and take their architecture to new heights."

Brian is also co-founder of the non-profit organization CodeMash, and runs the global Windows Azure Boot Camp program, and is co-author of the book Azure in Action, published by Manning Press.
