AzureRunMe Demo, Telnet and Java on Windows Azure

Richard Prodger talks to Rob Blackwell about running Java and other copy-deployable software, unmodified on Windows Azure.

Rob demonstrates running a telnet session to interact with a Windows Azure compute instance (More info http://www.robblackwell.org.uk/2010/09/23/telnet-to-windows-azure.html) and how AzureRunMe (azurerunme.codeplex.com) makes it easy to run Java software including the Apache Tomcat Web Server.

They discuss the upcoming Windows Azure Launch Pad http://www.aws.net/azurelaunchpad work and how this will enable Independent Software Vendors (ISVs) to get up and running quickly in the cloud.
