Microsoft Strategy Brief: Cloud Scale Data Centers

Microsoft Strategy Brief: Cloud Scale Data Centers

Published 5th April, 2013 by Microsoft

Delivering services at cloud-scale requires a radically different approach to designing, building, deploying, and operating data centers. When software applications are built as distributed systems, every aspect of the physical environment – from the server design to the building itself – creates an opportunity to drive systems integration for greater reliability, scalability, efficiency, and sustainability.

This strategy brief will explore how cloud workloads have changed the way data centers are designed and operated by Microsoft. It will also share information on how to approach developing more resilient online services that deliver higher availability while lowering overall costs.
