Yesterday I wrote almost 1,000 words on Microsoft’s Azure platform, but I think this video does a good job explaining the basics without all that pesky reading. Steve Marx, who works for Microsoft, pulled together a video in what I would call the “whiteboard genre” that explains not only Azure, but the basics of any platform as a service. It’s cute, and inspired me to compile a couple of other cloud-related videos, featuring gems such as IBM’s biography of a beekeeper who founded cloud computing, or this nice overview from HighTechDad (who also works for GoGrid, a cloud computing provider.) Any other favorites out there?
