This is great Phil. We may want to invite Ross Gardler to this
(CC'ed). He is on the Apache board and he has spoken to ESIP before
about VMDepot at Microsoft which has similar goals I think.

Subject: [ESIP-all] Microsoft Azure4Research Talk ---- Scale out your
Research Computation using Microsoft Azure

>Dear All, 
>The cloud computing cluster invited Dr. Wenming Ye from Microsoft to talk
>about how Azure can be adopted for geoscience research. We look forward
>to your participation.
>Learn how easy it is to move beyond your desktop using the cloud.
>Microsoft Azure provides a highly scalable and flexible cloud
>infrastructure for big data computations.
>Areas covered in the session:
>€How cloud computing enables you to run data-intensive computations, and
>at scale
>€Easily running parameter sweep/map reduce compute jobs for your
>scientific analysis
>€Developing, deploying, and running scaled out R, Matlab, and Python
>applications on Microsoft Azure
>Discover the resources available to help you take advantage of cloud
>computing for your research, including Microsoft Azure awards, free
>training courses around the world, online training, and technical papers
>at www.azure4research.com.
>Wenming Ye is a Sr. Research Program Manager at Microsoft Research. His
>current responsibility is helping researchers to utilize Cloud-based Big
>Data and Big Compute tools in their research. After completing his
>graduate work at CU Boulder, Mr. Ye joined SRI International, where he
>focused on design and development of innovative wireless, handheld, and
>Web-based simulation tools and services. Mr. Ye returned to Boulder as a
>Sr. developer on the commercialization team at Tech-X Corp, where he
>developed and productized large-scale HPC software. Mr. Ye then joined
>Microsoft as a Sr. technical evangelist worked on products including
