Build your hosted cloud offerings

With more than 22 million Windows Servers and 6 million .NET applications in production, much of today’s computing environment is rooted in Microsoft technologies. Hyper-V, Windows Server, and System Center are designed to be the ideal platforms to host this infrastructure. As applications transition to the cloud, hosting service providers need to be ready to on-board and manage environments with the latest Microsoft technologies.

Deliver better performance at a lower cost

Service providers get the performance they require in Microsoft’s servers with Hyper-V’s industry-leading scale (VMs with 1 TB of memory and 64 virtual CPUs and clusters with up to 8,000 nodes) and SQL Server’s AlwaysOn failover technology.

With Microsoft technology you can streamline the onboarding of enterprise customers and reduce storage costs by up to 50%.

Create and deploy new services faster

As a hosting service provider, you want to deliver excellent value to your customers. Microsoft has included new features in the latest release of server products, such as Hyper-V Replica and SQL Server AlwaysOn, allowing you to quickly create new service lines.

With the Windows Azure Pack you can deliver consistent Microsoft Azure experiences and services using your existing investments in System Center and Windows Server.
