MS eyes 'Iris' Web services

Author: JT Smith

An anonymous reader sent in this item from ExtremeTech: "Microsoft is fleshing out its web-services lineup to include not only consumer offerings, but a set of developer services,
code-named Iris, that will be licensed -- and, in some cases, hosted -- by Microsoft.

The company already has announced its consumer web services -- .Net My Services (formerly code-named Hailstorm).
Microsoft has begun delivering to key partners, such as eBay, beta versions of some of these My Services offerings such as
.Net Alerts.

But Microsoft also is briefing selected developers under
nondisclosure about other, future collections of
web-services that it is working to put in place."
