Thank you Pep...

Pep Guardiola has announced to the president and squad that he will not be staying at FC Barcelona after June 30, when his present contract ends.

Guardiola is convinced that “I am leaving with the sensation of having done a good job and I’m proud of what I’ve done here. I have not forgotten anything that I was taught by my predecessors. And I am leaving at peace with myself”.

Announcing Windows Azure Media Services

The Windows Azure platform just keeps getting better and better. Yesterday Microsoft announced the upcoming preview of the new Windows Azure Media Services. 

Windows Azure Media Services form an extensible media platform that integrates the best of the Microsoft Media Platform and third-party media components in Windows Azure. Media Services provide a media pipeline in the cloud that enables industry partners to extend or replace component technologies. ISVs and media providers can use Media Services to build end-to-end media solutions.

Media Services include the following set of capabilities for building media solutions:

  • Ingesting & encoding
  • Content protection
  • On-demand streaming
  • Live streaming
  • Media management, tagging, and analytics

The Windows Azure Media Services preview will be available at no cost (charges for associated Windows Azure features like Storage, Egress, and CDN may apply).

For more information on these services and how to build solutions around them, visit the Windows Azure Developer Center.
