Amazon and Microsoft To Demo Their Cloud Platforms At Streaming Media West In LA

With no up-front expenses and no long-term commitment, both Amazon's CloudFront platform and Microsoft's Windows Azure platform enable you to pay only for the resources you use, and it's simple to configure both of them within minutes to store and deliver your content and applications. At the Streaming Media West show next week, representatives from both Amazon and Microsoft will give an overview of how their platforms work, show attendees how to use them and answer questions specific to their platforms.

Today is the last day to register online, but you can also register next week on-site at the event. Readers of my blog can still register using my own personal discount code of DRF1, which gets you a two-day ticket to the show for only $595.
