Microsoft Gains Azure Partner
Microsoft's cloud platform Azure now has three major OEMs behind it. Both HP and Dell have promised to field Azure services. And now Fujitsu , which just announced a new cloud service based on Microsoft Azure, is set to beat the two American companies to market.
One neat little Microsoft trick is the Azure appliance, which Fujitsu plans to make full use of. The appliance includes servers, storage and network hardware from a variety of firms, pre-installed instances of Azure and a cloud-ready version of SQL Server. These appliances are available to OEMs, service providers and IT shops.
