Securing Microsoft's cloud infrastructure

Gain an understanding of what cloud computing at Microsoft means today and how the company delivers a trustworthy cloud computing infrastructure.

Cloud Security

Recent research on the emerging definitions of "Cloud," "cloud computing," and "cloud environment" has attempted to identify what customers expect from cloud providers and to find ways to categorize what such providers say they will offer. The idea that purchasing services from a cloud environment may allow technology business decision makers (BDMs) to save money and allow companies to focus on their core business is an enticing proposition in the current economic climate. Many analysts view the emerging possibilities for pricing and for delivering services online as disruptive to market conditions. These market studies and the ensuing dialogue among prospective customers and service providers show certain themes have emerged as potential barriers to rapid adoption of cloud services. Concerns about security, privacy, reliability, and operational control top the list of potential barriers. Microsoft recognizes that BDMs have many questions about these issues including a need to know how they are addressed in the cloud computing environment at Microsoft and the implications to their own risk and operations decisions.
