Title: A Simple Web Site Migration to the Cloud – Amazon vs. Azure

Are you interested in moving you web site to the cloud? How complicated can it be? How much is it going to cost? How do you get started? Should I use Amazon web services of Microsoft Azure? As always, the answer to these questions is ‘It Depends’. In this session I’ll walk through some of the options and scenarios you will face in migrating a site to the cloud and give you some pointers so you can decide what is best for your situation. This talk is meant to provide enough information for you to get started in looking at your migration to the cloud – it is not an advanced ‘how to’ talk.

Jason Haley has been working with Microsoft technologies for the past 15 years in various settings – mostly in the New England and Seattle areas. Last year (2009), he decided to become an independent consultant and started Jason Haley Consulting. Now almost a year of being gainfully unemployed, he is building his client base in the New England area and enjoying the opportunities of working with multiple clients instead of just a single full-time employer.
