Microsoft Corp. has established the Cloud OS Network, an international working group that will offer Microsoft-based cloud computing products and services to customers.
More than 25 technology firms have signed up for the consortium with the aim of helping businesses deploy Windows Server in Hyper-V, System Center and Windows Azure, Microsoft said Thursday.
“This network of leading service providers will help our customers create datacenters without boundaries for apps, data and device management,“ said Takeshi Numoto, Microsoft corporate vice president for cloud and enterprise marketing.
The ecosystem was formed to also provide managed cloud services intended to improve productivity and operational efficiency.
“CSC and Microsoft continue to partner on offerings that leverage the tremendous growth in apps, devices and data that are driven by the rise of cloud computing,” said Marc Silvester, vice president of Offerings Management at CSC.
