Just as the Internet changed the way people work, interact, and play, the cloud era is transforming the very landscape of IT. It’s disrupting every aspect—from hardware, to software, to services. The cloud requires a redefinition of the server OS—transforming it into a strategic asset that you can use to react more quickly to market shifts, deliver new products and services faster, and get ahead of the competition—but only if you have the
right technology in place to make it happen.
The Cloud OS is our vision for the new era—a consistent, modern platform for the world’s apps. It puts Microsoft’s massive server and services experience in your hands and lets you take advantage of our learning to make IT the hero.
Transform Your Datacenter
It’s no longer just about servers and nodes, it’s about managing the entire datacenter and even multiple clouds in a holistic way. With massive scale, elasticity, and ubiquitous availability, you can now build and deploy apps in powerful new ways.
Enable Modern Apps
Today’s apps need to be rapidly deployed. They need to scale by demand. And they need to work reliably on multiple devices, in multiple datacenter/cloud environments, and with multiple programming languages. By re-imagining application lifecycle management, you can increase developer and IT productivity and ensure greater availability for your apps.
Unlock Insights on Any Data
With lower storage costs and growing data volumes, businesses are processing larger volumes and varieties of data and asking new questions. You can explore all types of data—including rich third-party data sources—through immersive experiences and gain new insights for better, faster business decisions.
Empower People-centric IT
With the proliferation and range of new devices, today’s users need to be productive wherever they choose, on whatever device they choose. You can easily manage these devices and securely deliver apps and data in an extended, dynamic environment.
