Next Windows OS to run online
Microsoft has unveiled a cloud computing service, in which data and applications will not be stored on individuals' computers.
The new platform, dubbed Windows Azure, was announced at Microsoft's Professional Developers Conference in Los Angeles.
The platform was described by Microsoft's chief software architect Ray Ozzie as "Windows for the cloud".
The framework will be offered alongside the next Windows release, Windows 7.
The move sees Microsoft taking on established players like Google and Amazon in the rapidly growing business of online software.
The aim is to allow developers to build new applications which will live on the internet, rather than on their own computers.

Windows Azure allows companies to use its data centers to run their web applications. Large and small businesses all over the world, switching from costly hosting services and data centers to Microsoft will be utterly Dependant. You will develop on their platform, on their hardware, and they will distribute the access of your own programs.
