Microsoft continues to move aggressively in the cloud computing area.
As Code Guru details, the software giant’s new Hyper-V Cloud initiative has already signed up several blue chip IT partners to help with its cloud computing rollout. Microsoft says it’s signed up more than 70 service providers globally to provide “fully hosted service” running on Microsoft technologies, while customers will also have the option to host private clouds themselves.
Microsoft opened its TechEd Europe 2010 conference in Berlin this week by revealing a new initiative — called Hyper-V Cloud — as part of its evolving cloud computing strategy meant to make it easier for customers to deploy private cloud environments either in-house or from a hosting provider.
