Microsoft

Microsoft envisions a datacenter without boundaries—where you can extend beyond the resources you have on-premises to more easily use cloud resources when you need them. Rapidly build new global-scale applications or websites. Scale infrastructure at a moment’s notice to meet the most demanding business requirements. And reduce the cost of storage, backup, and recovery.

Microsoft technologies offer another great advantage: dynamic delivery of applications. The goal of creating infrastructure is to help your IT professionals respond to the needs of the business more quickly and with greater agility. With the power of automation, IT professionals are equipped to provision, deploy, monitor, and manage nearly everything—applications and infrastructure—from a consistent platform across clouds.

This datacenter transformation is driven by Windows Server 2012 R2, Microsoft Azure, and Microsoft Office 365.
