Windows Azure Adds Node.js Support, Hadoop Preview

What is happening with Windows? This is not right. If they keep doing such things I might have to start liking them. By the way node.js is making more news - but that is nothing new. And they say the next year is the year of the hadoop. It does look like that.


When Win­dows Azure was launched in 2008, it was with the inten­tion, Microsoft said, of run­ning .NET Frame­work appli­ca­tions from the cloud. What ended up hap­pen­ing was that the PaaS mar­ket matured much faster than any­one in 2008 could have antic­i­pat­ed, so any cloud apps plat­form that needs to stay com­pet­i­tive must run with the lan­guages the devel­op­ment world is using.
