Microsoft to rebrand Windows Azure as Microsoft Azure

Microsoft will rebrand its cloud platform from 'Windows Azure' to 'Microsoft Azure' as part of the company's push to emphasize its cross-platform services prowess.

From All About Microsoft:

Microsoft will announce its rebranding of its "Windows Azure" cloud operating system to "Microsoft Azure," this week, according to a couple of tipsters of mine.

The announcement is expected to happen tomorrow, March 25, and to take effect on April 3, the second day of Microsoft's Build conference in San Francisco, said a couple of individuals who asked not to be identified, but who are familiar with Microsoft's plans.

The rebranding makes sense, given Windows Azure isn't all about Windows. Azure customers can run Linux in virtual machines on the operating system. Azure users also can run Oracle databases and middleware, and use non-Windows-specific development tools, including Java, Ruby, PHP and Python.
