Silverlight Streaming saves me Bandwidth

johnWeeGo I posted my first dev article on on the weekend, it all about making a panorama, using deep zoom, virtual earth and silverlight streaming.

Today I checked the reports on usage:


5,644 hits on the sample application in a few days! That could have been my entire server's bandwidth for the month (50GB).

This is why Silverlight Streaming is so good. Anyone can make a cool Silverlight app and simple have no worries about what happens if it gets popular and a bunch of people play with.

It is also good for Microsoft, it encourages us to actually get out there and show Silverlight. A true win-win situation.
