Wow, 9 episodes already! Thanks to the support of our viewers, who we’re pretty sure really love cloud elasticity, The Azure Files is still going and will be for a while! You all rock!
This episode has Othelo and Matt answering a Question of the Week sent in by Lorrain, who works for a financial services company, and who would like to find out more about what moving to the cloud can offer in terms of supporting a demanding month-end.
She asks “Can we literally only pay for what we use, as we go, when and where we use cloud?”
Of course, this sparks off a conversation about the “elasticity” of the cloud and how it pertains to batch processing – something that every month-end entails.
There is good news for anyone also grappling with the question of scalable horsepower in the cloud at specific times of the month, but you’ll have to watch the episode to hear it. It’s also a great primer on cloud elasticity in general.
