Here is my interview of Microsoft Architecture Evangelist David Chow at the PDC Underground. What is a Architect Evangelist? ITs a person who specializes in a Microsoft Technology and helps other Architects in the business world find the right answers and right people for the job at hand. David’s current Technology Platform is Microsoft Cloud Computing project known as Azure. David describes to us how the could will help us extend out our current architecture from the internal data center out onto the cloud giving the enterprise environment more flexibility and a robust disaster recover model. He also explains that by taking our datacenters to the cloud we are given the ability to scale horizontally instantaneously with only minor costs increases. Microsoft has brought this idea into reality when it hosted its NBC Olympics on this platform using its Silver light player. David firmly believes that this form of computing will democratize the way the internet works allowing everyone to host and scale as if they were a Amazon or EBay site during Christmas. It is truly a exciting time for the internet community as cloud computing is bringing in a age of cheaper hosting and easing designing for a architecture of scale. Look for this and more in this very exciting interview.
