Hi,

I can answer your question partially..

"Azure" is project name from Microsoft for Cloud Computing.

Benefit for Asp.Net Developer:

Cloud Computing will give you hardware independence.

e.g;

You don't have to worry about traffic to your Web Apps, means if traffic to web Applcation increase or decrease dramatically, your application works fine .

Demerit for Asp.Net Developer:

your Application should be completly stateless, as you said you have existingwebsite in Asp.Net , then may be you are using Session variable to maintain state ... but in cloud computing you will not have session variables .

So you have to change your existing application alot to make compatible with cloud computing.

Following are few links for startup, I hope it will help you

Cloud computing is the delivery of computing as a service rather than a product, whereby shared resources, software, and information are provided to computers and other devices as a utility (like the electricity grid) over a network (typically the Internet).

Cloud computing is a technology that uses the internet and central remote servers to maintain data and applications. Cloud computing allows consumers and businesses to use applications without installation and access their personal files at any computer with internet access. This technology allows efficient computing by centralizing storage, memory, processing and bandwidth.
