Cloud computing is happening. It is being driven by the exponential growth in modern applications, data and devices. These trends require organizations to quickly scale and deliver continuous services. Simultaneously, innovation is happening across storage, network and compute technologies. With these new requirements and innovations, IT is under pressure to deliver capacity on demand, whether for short-term projects or longer-term initiatives. At the same time, organizations have higher expectations for service levels – services must be always up, always on, with no planned or unplanned downtime. To meet these challenges, a new modern platform is required. In the era of cloud computing, Microsoft delivers this with the Cloud OS. The Cloud OS takes on a broader role than just managing a server. Microsoft’s vision for the Cloud OS is focused on the transformation of the datacenter, enabling modern applications, unlocking insights on any data and empowering people-centric IT.

The Cloud OS requires a comprehensive execution of vision crossing a wide range of enterprise technologies, including Microsoft Azure, SQL Server, System Center and Windows Server.

Fundamental to the modern datacenter, is the ability to build private cloud infrastructures and quickly scale within the datacenter as well as agile and secure consumption of Windows Azure and service provider cloud capacity.
