Azure: Invitation Code


I finally got the invitation code I have been waiting for:

This invitation to participate in the Windows Azure Community Technical Preview is subject to the following usage limits:

Total compute usage: 2000 VM hours
Cloud storage capacity: 50GB
Total storage bandwidth: 20GB/day

Now all I need is a few hours of quite to actually get some code into Azure. The more I think about the whole idea of putting the basics of a SDP into the cloud the sooner I can validate Azure from a financial perspective.
