Ozzie told FAM attendees that Microsoft is working on a set of platforms and tools for the cloud transition. “We want to make a programming model leveragable on premise and in the cloud,” Ozzie said.
He noted that “Amazon has done a terrific job” at delivering a hosted solution for developers. “We’ve learned a lot from it.”
Ozzie declined to provide FAM attendees with a delivery date for Zurich, but said “over the course of fiscal ‘09 (which ends on June 30, 2009), you will see the entire strategy rounded out.”
