Google tries to lure .NET devs with PowerShell cloud bait

re Jury is out?

While I applaud what you have done getting Azure running in-house, I do have to ask Why? The idea of going public cloud was to move the burden of IT depts, updates and so on, out of the business. Why would we want to take it all back in again? I get your point (maybe) on costs but have you included your cost, other staff, lighting, heating and so on?

Seems like we're going back to the good old days of NT server boxes sitting in racks all lovingly managed by a group of bearded techies (I was one once) who talk in a language nobody else understands.

If a business is in IT hosting I can understand it but a plumbing supply company or a supermarket should stick to it's core business and stay out of the IT game.
