Azure, Mobility and Big Data dominates at Microsoft’s Build 2015 Conference

By Rachel Coyne on 07 May 2015

Satalyst’s Chief Technical Officer, Aidan Morgan, has returned from Microsoft’s Build 2015 developers’ conference in San Francisco.  Some of the fun and more buzzworthy sessions and demos outside the keynote addresses were around Microsoft’s efforts for the Internet of Things (both with Windows 10 and Azure) and the “Holographic Academy” sessions for Microsoft’s HoloLens.  But the dominant themes were around Azure, mobility and big data. Azure data centres now support 19 unique regions around the world, more than Amazon Web Services and Google’s cloud. In the past year alone, Microsoft launched 500 new Azure services. In his keynote speech, Scott Guthrie (Executive VP of the Cloud and Enterprise group) announced new options for big data: Azure SQL data warehouse service – a broad-scale data warehousing platform that runs in the cloud; and a Azure Data Lake – a hyper-scale data store for big data analytic workloads integrated with Azure Machine Learning and other big data services from Microsoft.
