As children we are enthralled by the stories that we hear. Stories teach us and fire our imaginations to what is possible in this world. And as adults, we're not much different. It's one thing to hear about a process, product or idea, but hearing the story of the trials and triumphs that accompanied the implementation of that process, product or idea is what sticks with us and gives our imagination flight as to the possibilities within our own situation.
Case studies are like stories and there are a whole host of them that Microsoft has put together on a variety of technologies and solutions. There are 79 just on private cloud implementations and a number on Windows Azure have been highlighted on the Windows Azure site. However, there is nothing quite like hearing the story right from the author, or in this case, right from one of the people in the story.
In July, Mary Jo Foley was on the show and talked about Microsoft's cloud offerings from an industry perspective. For our next show, we thought it would be interesting to talk to a few folks who have actually been working on cloud solutions using Microsoft technologies either internally or for their customers. Hosts Jonathan Rozenblit and Ruth Morton chat with Bruce Johnson and John White about public and private cloud implementations they've done for their companies and for their clients. They also share stories of the barriers they had to overcome and the successes they enjoyed.
