In case you're not keeping-up with the Telerik.com blogs, I recently published two posts talking about the "cloud readiness" of the Telerik RadControls for ASP.NET AJAX. The Readers' Digest version of the posts: Telerik RadControls are "Cloud Ready." Specifically, you can easily build applications that target Microsoft's new Windows Azure cloud platform and fully leverage your RadControls for ASP.NET AJAX to provide the familiar, rich, standards-based UI. For more back story, check out the original posts: RadControls for ASP.NET AJAX on Azure Deploying RadControls to Azure Two videos that are related to these posts will also soon be on Telerik TV (as in, within days). In the mean time, you can also see a live, real project hosting many of the RadControls (with more to come) running on the Azure CTP right now! Check it out: http://telerik.cloudapp.net So now that you know Telerik is "cloud ready," I'm curious to hear your thoughts on the cloud (and specifically Azure). Is this a hosting platform that you can't wait to use or are you happy with today's (arguably simpler) hosting models?
