Move your development VM to Azure
During my day job I regularly had to use virtual machines to do my work on. It just simply isn’t convenient to run BizTalk Server or SharePoint on you laptop. I’ve used many types and brands of virtualisation software like Virtual PC, Virtual Server and VMWare. More recently I started using Hyper-V, which, because baked into Windows 8, sounds like a very natural thing to do. Unfortunately, whatever software I used, the performance I get just doesn’t provide a good user experience.
