eduify | write faster

“ Cloud computing democratizes access to
carrier-class data center technology with
better performance, higher efficiency, and
lower costs; Microsoft’s Azure adds to that
integration with a first-class development
platform, decades of operations
experience, and a developer toolbox of
customizable services.”
– Brian Mathews, Vice President, Autodesk

“ Making a reliable cloud application
can be really hard, and Azure uses
.NET and Visual Studio tools we
already know and that we already
know how to put out into a
marketplace. That's very helpful for
us and it's helpful for our
customers.”
– Erik Johnson
Research Director, Epicor

“ With Azure, your ability to
deliver solutions becomes
much faster and you can
really innovate and be
competitive.”
– Jitendra Thethi
Principle Architect, Infosys
Microsoft is Your Trusted Technology Partner
High-level services integrate with your on-

premises application, extending your infrastructure into the
cloud and enabling new types of solutions.

On-Premises Application and Cloud
Storage allows you to reduce IT tasks, and focus on
delivering solutions, not managing technology
infrastructure.

Windows Azure is an open
platform, enabling you to have vendor choice and
increasing your flexibility in how to build applications.

Microsoft is enterprise ready, providing a

worldwide datacenter presence, Service Level
Agreements, developer programs and the customer service
and support your business expects.

"It’s the transformation of
our software, it’s the
transformation of our strategy
and our offerings across the
board to fundamentally
embrace services.”
—RAY OZZIE

Microsoft is Your Trusted Technology Partner High-level services integrate with your on- premises application, extending your infrastructure into the cloud and enabling new types of solutions. On-Premises Application and Cloud Storage allows you to reduce IT tasks, and focus on delivering solutions, not managing technology infrastructure. Windows Azure is an open platform, enabling you to have vendor choice and increasing your flexibility in how to build applications. Microsoft is enterprise ready, providing a worldwide datacenter presence, Service Level Agreements, developer programs and the customer service and support your business expects. "It’s the transformation of our software, it’s the transformation of our strategy and our offerings across the board to fundamentally embrace services.” —RAY OZZIE

Editor's Notes

  1. Move to back of the deck
  2. Virtualized Computation provides massive application scalability. Customers can build a combination of web and worker roles, and those roles can be automatically replicated as needed to scale the applications and computational processing power.•Storage Services allow customers to scale to store any amount of data – in any format – for any length of time, only paying for what they use or store.•Services Management takes place in the Fabric Controller, the core of Windows Azure Services Management. The Fabric Controller is where load balancing and application scaling take place. Additionally, the virtualized computational capabilities are performed here.•Security and Control with storage encryption and access authentication as well as over-the-wire encryption secures your data and application. Industry certification is a core part of the Windows Azure roadmap, seeking certifications on compliance with SOX, SAS70, and others. State-of-the-art data centers located around the would – or on your site – host your applications and data securely anywhere you desire, accessible from everywhere you allow.
