Why Windows Azure Platform?
- CSC believes that moving to Windows Azure will give it a significant competitive advantage with its Legal Solutions Services product.
- Local applications now behave more like job schedulers, handing off compute-intensive tasks to cloud-based worker services hosted on the virtual machines in the Windows Azure platform and brought online and offline as needed.
