MICROSOFT TARGETS CLOUD COMPUTING

 

Microsoft has embarked on what it describes as the biggest strategic shift since venturing online. The company plans to build about 20 state-of-the-art data centers in an effort to outpace Google in Cloud Computing.

The 20 supersize data centers are expected to cost as much as $1 billion apiece and house as many as 560,000 servers per data center or upto 11 million servers in total. That will eclipse the 1 million servers estimated to be deployed at Google’s data centers.

Although Google has the lead over Microsoft many analysts believe that Microsoft has an advantage over Google in doling out cloud services for corporations, given its long history of developing reliable, feature-rich software. 

Further information on Google data center inner workings have been shrouded in secrecy.  Microsoft has taken the opposite approach – sharing information with suppliers. “Microsoft is…collaborating with the industry to drive innovation forward, to get great minds engaged,” said Forrest Norrod, GM Data Center Solutions for Dell.
