Join David Rivers for an in-depth discussion in this video Taking a look at Microsoft Windows Live, part of Cloud Computing First Look (2012).
If you happen to have a free Hotmail account, you're probably already acquainted with Windows …Live. Now Windows Live is not really a product, but more of a brand. It probably won't be …called Windows Live once Windows 8 is released, but we'll call it Windows Live for now. …There's for example Hotmail, which we're looking at right now. It's a free online email system. …You have some other apps like Messenger for example, SkyDrive which gives you a whole list …of tools and features and functions which we'll talk about in more detail in the next lesson.…
Now all of these tools are free and they're on the cloud. Of course, you're not storing …your emails locally on your own computer, your messenger conversations are saved on …the cloud as well, and you need to be connected to the Internet to access all of this. …Now a free Windows Live account will also give you access to something called Windows …Live Essentials. Windows Live Essentials is a little bit different, it's even more free …tools and services that you can download to your computer. …
David also presents an overview of migration and common cloud technologies as you contemplate a move to the cloud, including Google Apps, Microsoft Windows Live, and more. The final chapter outlines how to evaluate the ongoing effectiveness of the cloud for your business.
