  10. 10. Workload Patterns Optimal for Cloud Services
  11. 11. “On and Off” Average Usage Compute Inactivity Time
  12. 12. “Growing Fast” Compute Average Usage Time
  13. 13. “Unpredictable Bursting” Compute Average Usage Time
  14. 14. “Predictable Bursting” Average Usage Compute Time
  15. 15. “On and Off” Compute Usage Average Time Workload Patterns Optimal for Cloud “Growing Fast” Inactivity Compute Average Usage Time “Unpredictable Bursting” “Predictable Bursting” Compute Compute Average Usage Average Usage Time Time
  16. 16. Reasons for Considering a Cloud-Based Approach Greater business agility Greater resource agility Managed costs Smaller carbon footprint
  17. 17. Microsoft Cloud Services(A Historical Retrospective)
