IT as a service

Transforming IT with the Windows Azure Platform

Windows Azure Thumb

Cloud computing is changing how all of usMicrosoft and our customersthink about information technology. New deployment options, new business models, and new opportunities abound.

To Microsoft, cloud computing represents a transformation of the industry in which we and our partners work to deliver IT as a Service. This transformation will let you focus on your business, not on running infrastructure. It will also let you create better applications, then deploy those applications wherever makes the most sense: in your own data center, at a regional service provider, or in our global cloud. In short, IT as a Service will let you deliver more business value.

To make this transformation possible, Microsoft provides the Windows Azure platform, complementing our existing Windows Server platform. Together, these two platforms allow enterprises, regional service providers, and Microsoft itself to deliver applications across private and public clouds with a consistent identity, management, and application architecture. By increasing business value and lowering costs, this foundation for IT as a Service will transform how organizations use information technology.
