I, For One, Welcome our New Cloud Overlords

I’m trying really hard to not pay attention to PDC today, but, damn them and their interesting announcements!  The “Cloud OS” turned out to be Azure.  Good stuff there.  “BizTalk Services” are dead, long live .NET Services.    Neat that you have both Java and Ruby SDKs for .NET Services.

Also, we got a full release of the Microsoft Federation Gateway (whitepaper here) and a preview of the Microsoft Service Connector (announcement here).  For companies tackling B2B scenarios with a myriad of partners, these technologies may offer a simplified route.

Ok, back to real work.  Stop distracting me with your sexy cloud products.
