Thank you.  The intro does give a quick overview of what Azure is but, it doesn't tell me why choose it over using a regular web hosting account like one at any web hoster for Windows IIS7 with .NET. 

 

Why choose Azure over a web hosting account that offers Windows IIS 7 for .NET 3.5, with Silverlight 3, 2x200MB MSSQL, 25 MySQLs, 500MB disk storage, 1 Tera bandwidth per month for $7 USD.  Why would I switch to Azure?  For $7 per month for a new unproven web application my web host offers much and for $15 I get unlimited MSSQL @ 200mb each, unlimited storage and bandwith,  redundancy and daly backups.  How is Azure better?
