Windows Azure is an open and flexible global cloud platform supporting any language, tool, or framework, and is ideally suited to researchers’ needs across disciplines. Microsoft Research is pleased to offer training for academic researchers who are interested in or need to conduct their research on a highly scalable and flexible resource infrastructure, such as that offered by Windows Azure.
The Windows Azure for Research no-cost training is presented to select research community audiences. The audiences are predominantly practicing research scientists with at least basic software development skills. The default course is split into two days. The first day focuses on helping attendees acquire a general understanding of cloud computing with Windows Azure. The second day focuses on using Windows Azure at scale.
This event is co-hosted with the University of Cape Town.
