The Internet of things has become a reality. We ship more compute and storage capacity per year in “devices” than traditional PCs, and it feels like we have to get offline on purpose rather than online. This marks a sea change for the types of applications that need to be developed and the types of platforms that can emerge.

Learn why Windows Azure is a great cloud for running Node.js applications. In this talk, we’ll dive into Windows Azure’s support for Node, including command-line deployment and using Windows Azure’s scalable storage from any Node application.
What it takes to run Node.js in production
Most of us carry around mobile “machines” that generate all sorts of data about us and our environment without any human input. Machine-generated data is in between user- and science-generated data in terms of size and will require an entirely updated approach to infrastructure.
Enterprise applications have traditionally been used by a few people between the hours of 9 to 5. With the consumerization of IT, and the prevalence of mobile connectivity, many “workers” are accessing applications via a mobile device. This trend is crushing traditional enterprise architectures. The same goes for traditional web architectures. With the rise of mobile-first applications, applications are often becoming connection-bound and architectures are changing to account for this.
