Your Invitation To The Hyper-V Cloud Roadshow!

For a growing number of businesses, the journey to cloud computing starts with a private cloud architecture. A private cloud pools and dynamically allocates your IT resources across business units, so that services can be deployed quickly and scaled out to meet business needs whenever they occur.

Microsoft provides the full range of cloud capability in both the public and private cloud. Windows Azure, Windows Server, Hyper-V, System Center, are a key part of our approach to cloud computing, enabling you to build out a dedicated cloud environment to transform the way your team delivers IT services to the business.

With so many people talking about the benefits of Private Cloud, one of the key questions on your mind must be – “What’s it all going to cost?” Together with its strong partner community, Microsoft has invested a lot of thought into ways these technologies can significantly reduce your OPEX, CAPEX and cost of transition!
