  • Been doing this awhile…As we think about how Microsoft is poised to take advantage of the shift to services going forward, let’s step back a minute and just set some context about where we are and where we’ve beenWe been doing business and delivering software through the cloud for over a decadeMost people are surprised to learn about where we’re leading…Our online properties (WL, MSN) see some 600 million unique users every monthThe Xbox guys pushed out some 5 petabytes of content over Xbox Live during the week of ChristmasWe process up to 9.9 billion messages a day via WL MessengerWe have over 500 million active Windows Live IDsThe BPOS guys have a million paying users in 36 countries and regionsEven MS Update/Windows Update … operates at incredible scale - pushes out over a petabyte of updates every month to millions of servers and hundreds of millions of PCsEven back when we pushed out SP2 for Windows XP, over 250 million of those PCs were upgraded with WU – upgrading a desktop operating system is as incredibly sophisticated a cloud service as you will ever see, and we did it at massive scale (hundreds of millions)We’re not new at this…Our breadth of experience spans 30 years w/consumers, over 20 years in the enterprise, and over a decade providing services in the cloudWhen these competencies, these muscles come together – our understanding of enterprise requirements combined w/our ability to scale delivery through the cloud, for example – you get things like MS Online services. The sum of our capabilities ends up greater than the partsOther guys trying to compensate for that via acquisitions – we wish them luckThis breadth of offering extends to our hundreds of thousands of partners as wellFor every $1 in revenue we make, they make $7 – that’s how we built the company – that continues in the cloudWe have more than 7,000 partners reselling BPOS, more than 100 partners join this community each weekWe have nearly 10,000 hosting partnersOur commitment to continuing this path is reflected through the investments we’re making, through the breadth of our offering across all these different businesses we’re in and the investment we’re makingWe’re evolving some of the most successful product franchises the software industry has ever seen – Windows and Office – to the cloud, and we’re not stopping there – our database business, our messaging and collab business – the list goes on and onNot taking this lightlyThis is how we’re going to grow the business – this is the future of MicrosoftNot just products, either – we believe our infrastructure/datacenter investments to be unmatched in the industry (put the onus on GOOG to refute?)700,000+ square foot Chicago and the 300,000+ square foot Dublin, Ireland data centersAmsterdam, Hong Kong, Japan, and Singapore: We announced (November 2009) that we have datacenter capacity in these regional locations//Microsoft sites, including MSN.com and Windows Live Services attract more than 600 million unique users worldwide each month and in 46 markets and 21 languagesMicrosoft sites captured nearly 15% of global internet minutes (up 43% from last year.) 70% of Microsoft’s time comes from Windows Live Messenger.Windows Live Hotmail: More than 369 million active accounts worldwide (Source: comScore WW November 2009), making it the world’s largest web-based email service and is used in nearly every country in the world.Windows Live Messenger:More than 314 million active accounts worldwide (Source: comScore WW November 2009); Customers send up to 9.9 billion messages a day with Windows Live Messenger. (Source: Microsoft internal data, as of October 2009), making it the #1 most used free instant messaging service in the world.
