Abstract:  Windows Azure has become a mature business cloud platform in the last two years. While web 2.0 companies enjoy the benefits of cloud on Windows Azure, the general research and scientific computing communities are just getting familiar with the platform. With the availability of IAAS Linux, Hadoop, IPython Notebooks, F#, Microsoft's Cloud Platform offers researchers the convenience to collaborate, and share their research online better. In this talk we’ll demonstrate the readiness of the crucial Big Compute and Big Data enabler technologies on Windows Azure for researchers. We'll also discuss how we built WRF as a Service in the Cloud on Windows Azure. http://weatherservice.cloudapp.net
