Elliot Curtis delivered the second session Tuesday morning at the Hosting & Cloud Transformation Summit, during which he set out to discuss Microsoft’s feeling and approach about the cloud, generally.

What has changed in the last 12 months or so, he says, is that the cloud has really captured the imagination of the IT industry.

A big part of that is looking at the way that customers – including small business, mid-sized companies, and enterprises – deal with the companies to which they outsource their IT services. Microsoft has a philosophy we’ve discussed before about becoming the “trusted advisor” to your customers (which may apply more directly in the smaller customer space)

Curis displayed a chart showing the dropping cost of hosting, which ended, of course, at zero – the current price of hosting, from a certain point of view.

    Well, He distinguishes the “Microsoft cloud,” which generally includes Windows Azure and SQL Azure, and is delivered directly to the developer type customer, from the “Partner Cloud,” which is built on Windows Server and SQL server (as well as a few other products) and is managed, arranged and updated by the partner.

    Thanks a lot for the post.
