Sitecore Coming Attractions

Just attended a user group presentation on Sitecore 6.3 and Sitecore Azure.  6.3 is all about cleaning up the relationship between Content Management and Content Authoring servers.  The Staging Module goes away, and is replaced by an event queuing architecture that enables, among other things, multiple Content Management servers (e.g one in California, one in the UK), to stay in sync.

But things get really cool with Sitecore Azure, which allows one-click style deployment of Content Management and Content Delivery servers from the cloud, for rapid scale up.  This looks like a big deal for Microsoft, since it provides a pretty nifty front-end to Azure.

Update: Microsoft posted a case study on Sitecore Azure.
