Free Ride On The Cloud

There are a number of free trials I found on the internet after finding out about the launch of Microsoft Azure. These are the major players that I found that are offering free trials.

1. Microsoft Azure

All these trials lets you test drive their services. I don’t time to try every single one of them so I have only signed up for Microsoft Azure and Amazon EC2. Azure and EC2 has present in Singapore, so access to them is speedy. I’m not too sure if the other 2 has their infrastructure here.

With all the big players going into cloud and offering services in an utility model and the ready availability of high bandwidth, it’s a matter of time cloud computing become prevalent. Other than services, more of the experience on our computer will be moved to the cloud. It’s a matter of time our desktops and laptops are replaced. Instead we will be going back to the days of thin client. 

Go give them a spin, and share the experience with the various cloud platforms.
