In today’s 24 x 7 global economy, your mission critical applications cannot afford to be off-line for even a small period of time.
Server virtualization has been a game-changing technology for IT, providing efficiencies and capabilities that just aren’t possible when constrained within a physical world. Virtualization can increase IT agility, flexibility, and scalability while creating significant cost savings. Workloads get deployed faster, performance and availability increases and operations become automated, resulting in IT that’s simpler to manage and less costly to own and operate.
Companies worldwide are embracing cloud computing as a key step they can take toward improving business agility, economics, and user experiences. Because of its power to fundamentally change how businesses operate and compete, the cloud is a game changer for the enterprise.
Cloud computing brings major implications for licensing and Microsoft’s strategy is to provide customers the flexibility and choice to adopt the private cloud, public cloud or a combination to suit their business needs. Our infrastructure licensing has evolved to provide easier choices for scaling up in the data center or hosted environments. It also offers expanded choices for adopting the public cloud.

Most of us “talk” more by text than by speaking. It’s the way life is, and it’s good. But when issues get complex, when nuance is more valuable than facts, or when we need an answer now—when we reach for an escalation tool—it’s hard to replace the dynamics of the human voice. We deliver voice as a high-definition, immersive experience. Our desktop phones are designed to get out of the way, to remove distractions.
