Need a place to build and test your apps, but can’t afford the hardware?

Start your FREE TRIALIf you are a developer, or if you are a member of an IT organization which supports a software development organization, then you know that sometimes you need more hardware than you can realistically afford.  And if you do buy the hardware, it becomes obsolete all-too-soon, or just sits there idle because the need for it was short-lived.

“One of the roadblocks to building a Windows 8 new interface application is that you need Windows 8 or Server 2012 to develop on. It just so happens that Microsoft has this great virtual server environment, called Windows Azure, where we can remote into a 2012 Server and build Windows 8 applications.”
