During day one PDC09 keynote, Ray Ozzie highlighted Microsoft’s commitment to interoperability announcing additional technologies you can now use on Window Azure Tomcat (Java), memcached and MySQL.
We sat down with Steve Marx (Technical Strategist in the Window Azure team) and Vijay Rajagopalan (Principal Architect in the Interoperability team) to discuss these new possibilities.
