Microsoft launch AWS clone – whats the user incentive?

Microsoft launch AWS clone – whats the user incentive? :

Microsoft have launched Compute services on their Azure platform. The specs, and even naming, is the same as Amazon Web Services EC2, and the price is the same or higher in some cases.

We’ll support Azure on Digital Mines when we see user demand – personally I don’t see this being the catalyst to do that. Microsoft had an opportunity to disrupt here I think – and go with a Compute Usage model, rather than the pure VM model (pay only for CPU cycles you consume rather than for a VM that you pay for no matter what the usage is).
