Quick note – I left Red Hat back in December and joined Avanade where I now lead a team of product managers and engineers building software and cloud services across cloud computing, mobile solutions, and digital marketing.

Earlier this week I authored a post on Avanade’s corporate blog about the significance of Windows Azure’s general availability of IaaS virtual machines and virtual networking, and how it ushers in a new era of hybrid cloud computing that spans on-premises with public cloud.

You should also check out the Windows Azure announcement and Scott Guthrie’s in-depth technical post.

The Cloud Zone is brought to you in partnership with Internap. Read Bare-Metal Cloud 101 to learn about bare-metal cloud and how it has emerged as a way to complement virtualized services.
