RELEASE: Free Microsoft Press eBook, “Introducing Windows Azure for IT Professionals” (.PDF/MOBI/ePUB)

We just released a doozy of an eBook called “Introducing Windows Azure for IT Professionals” that covers how to use Windows Azure “Infrastructure as a Service”.  Or in English – how to set up full Virtual Machines in Microsoft’s datacenters through a web browser and run your own instances of Windows Server 2008, 2008 R2, 2012, and 2012 R2… or if you prefer a number of a Linux variants!  Set up your own virtual network, your own Active Directory, open your own ports, and provide your own virtual lab in Microsoft’s “cloud”!

Whether you’re new to the Windows Azure platform or are already using it in your business, this book has something that should interest you. Most Windows Azure services are described in some detail, with screenshots used to demonstrate some of the multitude of capabilities of the platform. And for the experienced we have lots of under-the-hood insights and expert tips written by Microsoft insiders who develop, test, and use the Windows Azure platform.

The PDF is available to download today. The Mobi and ePub files will be available through this post soon. I’ll update those links as soon as I have them.
