How far will you take virtual?

As organizations evaluate how cloud computing can help them improve business agility, reduce management complexity and control costs, they are faced with numerous choices.

Cloud Thumb

To deliver maximum benefit and Return on Investment (ROI), cloud computing needs to be considered as part of a larger move towards more effective management and integration. Cloud computing solutions that cannot be effectively managed, or that add complexity rather than reduce it, will not fully deliver on cloud's promises of greater efficiency and flexibility.

Microsoft's cloud computing solution helps customers meet their current and future IT challenges. The infrastructure of Microsoft cloud computing provides more choice and flexibility through offerings such as a world-class public cloud option, comprehensive end-to-end management, and free cloud accelerator solutions with valuable out-of-box functionality. As result, Microsoft cloud computing helps companies increase how quickly they can respond to changes in their business environment and how effectively they can manage resources. At the same time, Microsoft cloud computing can help reduce management complexity and cost.

This document examines how VMware and Microsoft have approached their cloud solutions. When compared to the VMware cloud solution, the Microsoft solution is seen to have better management, greater integration with datacenter components, a better public cloud solution, and a simpler approach that translates to better results for the customer.
