Does anyone here know what Microsoft Azure is?  If so, can you explain it to me as if you are talking to a 4 year old?  hhh.

Cloud computing platform.

Effectively, virtualization of all your IT infrastructure, so you don't need to rely on the cost and expense of physical hardware.

Huge growth area for Microsoft. Basically Amazon, Google, IBM and Microsoft are looking to cloud computing as growth and profit centers. MS has inked some big deals with big companies and has been really good at getting smaller businesses who are already using Sharepoint, Exchange, Outlook, Office 365 etc to look to MS as their cloud computing solution.
