        Since our first datacenter in 1989, Microsoft has continued to explore new ways to provision and operate large-scale compute capacity for our cloud services’ and internal customers. As we evolve our datacenter designs, the gains in efficiency and performance allow Microsoft to offer ever more competitive cloud computing services for consumers and enterprise business customers. This strategy brief discusses the business drivers for datacenter construction and operations, and describes Microsoft’s modular approach to datacenter design that lowers construction costs, facilitates rapid scale, and improves overall operational efficiency.
