What is the Windows Azure $60K Offer?
The Windows Azure $60K Offer
helps cover a
startup’s cloud computing costs by providing up to $60K worth
of Windows Azure over two years:

Why is Microsoft doing this and why should my startup use

makes it easy for startups to get a production ready solution
up and running quickly so you can focus on building your business.
