xbl is powered by azure now so i don't get what you mean when you say upgrade.
Flexible meaning that it supports a large number of its own apps. MS cloud probably has one of the largest collection of 1st party apps already in the cloud(Bing, skype, office 365, etc) and still they are able to support xbox live which has the 45 million members. So it's scale has to be pretty huge to support that while still offering public support too.Quote:
Like Sufi said, what exactly do you mean when you say it's flexible? How is Azure already one of the more flexible ones out there?
Not even large services like netflix supports that many members. Not saying that MS is better but it's definitely one of the ones to watch out for in the future. AWS is still the biggest public cloud provider out there but others like google, MS, Rackspace aren't that far behind.
