Looking back at Six Week of Windows Azure – raw data


I wanted to share some of the “raw data” from Six Weeks of Windows Azure which started way back in January and completed today (29th Feb 2012)

I will shortly do a mini-retrospective.

Top Level:

  • Web site visits: 23,140 (as of 29th Feb) with 1857 visits on the busiest day
  • Partners involved: 11 (partners)
  • Sessions: 30 sessions and over 30 hours of content (agenda)
  • Live and On-Demand: All live sessions were recorded and made available for streaming/download along with session notes (slides and notes)
  • Registrations: Over 500 individuals registered with 150 unique companies joining us in Week 1
  • Active: 80 unique companies made it through to end of Week 3 (by which we had covered “all” the important bits)
  • Labs: 12 companies looking at SaaS using Windows Azure joined us in Week 4 labs in our Microsoft Technology Center

Who:

  • Majority of companies attending were partners vs customers (over 90%)
  • 75% of engagement came from UK companies
  • 71% Technical
  • 86% very little/no exposure to Cloud/Windows Azure
